Family & Companions
A former child actor with numerous stage and screen credits, Dexter Fletcher successfully made the transition to adult roles. He was only nine years old when Alan Parker cast him as Babyface in the gangster musical "Bugsy Malone" (1976). Stage and film work followed, including roles in "The Elephant Man" and "The Long Good Friday" (1980). The latter marked Dexter's first collaboration with Bob Hoskins. (Hoskins later cast the dark-haired actor in 1986's "The Raggedy Rawney" and Fletcher directed a short film in the late 1990s starring Hoskins.) After playing Gavroche in the 1978 CBS adaptation of "Les Miserables," he was cast as a young crew member of "The Bounty" (1984) and as Al Pacino's son in "Revolution" (1985). Fletcher began the transition to adult roles as the youthful incarnation of the artist in Derek Jarman's biopic "Caravaggio" (1986).
Fletcher achieved cult stardom in the UK playing American Spike Thompson alongside Julia Sawahla in the children's series "The Press Gang" (1989-93). Around the same time, he landed his first adult leading role in films, as a teenager obsessed with losing his virginity in "The Rachel Papers" (1989). More recently, Fletcher appeared as a priest in Michael Winterbottom's "Jude" (1996) and co-starred with Sting, Steven Mackintosh and Jason Flemyng in "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" (1998).
