Dexter Fletcher trained at the Anna Scher Theatre drama club in Islington, North London. Aged nine, he got his big break in Bugsy Malone. Growing up, he landed roles in several British movies such as The Long Good Friday. He became known for his role in the TV show Press Gang. He made the transition into adult roles in movies like Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels. He has since balanced TV work, such as Band Of Brothers and Misfits, with roles in movies including Stardust and Kick-Ass.
In 2004, when The Times asked Dexter Fletcher what his proudest acting achievement was, he replied “out of all the work I’ve done in the past there’s a theatre piece that I loved very much – The Impressario Of Smyner was a great show in a pub in Islington which restored my faith in acting and I ended up married to the director as well, which was a bonus”.
He married Dalia Ibelhauptaite in 1997. Alan Rickman was his best man.
He wrote the screenplay for the short movie Let The Good Times Roll.
He allegedly auditioned for the role of Robin in Batman Returns. The part was eventually deleted from the screenplay of Tim Burton’s movie.
