Carradine attended Oakland Junior College,[3] and later studied drama at San Francisco State College,before working as an actor on stage and in television and cinema.

He changed his given name to David after starting his career.

Early roles from 1963–64 included guest performances on TV shows of then-popular genres, anthology series and westerns. These included episodes of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, The Virginian and Wagon Train.
