  Biography  

 career
 Acting
Fletcher trained at the Anna Scher Theatre drama club. Fletcher's first film part was as Baby Face in Bugsy Malone . He made his stage début the following year in a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. As a child actor, Fletcher was a regular feature in British productions in the early 1980s such as The Long Good Friday, The Elephant Man, and The Bounty. As an adult, he has appeared on television as rebellious teenager Spike Thomson in Press Gang and also Murder Most Horrid with Dawn French. His American accent had some fans convinced that he actually is an American. He has starred in the films Caravaggio , The Rachel Papers , Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels , Layer Cake , AffirmFilm's Solomon as Rehoboam, and Universal's Doom as a communications officer nicknamed "Pinky".

On television, he has appeared in the major HBO drama, Band of Brothers and in a supporting role in the BBC One historical drama The Virgin Queen . He also appeared in Kylie Minogue's 1997 released music video Some Kind of Bliss. Fletcher has starred on BBC One in a series based on the Imogen Edwards-Jones's book, Hotel Babylon which ran for four series before being axed in 2009. He also appeared in one episode, "The Booby and the Beast", of BBC's Robin Hood series 2 as the German Count Friedrich and in the 2008 radio series The Way We Live Right Now.

He also appeared in Bo! Selecta spin off, A Bears Tail as 'The Scriptwriter' after fellow Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels star Nick Moran portrayed this role in the pilot, but not in the series proper. He played a brief role in the BBC series New Tricks, in the episode "Final Curtain", where he played fictional actor, Tommy Jackson.

He also appeared in the Boon episode "Walking Off Air", playing Eddie Cotton.

In 2009, he appeared in Misfits as Nathan Young's dad, reprising the role in 2010 for the second series.

Fletcher stars in 2009 in the Vampire film Dead Cert, which is directed by Steven Lawson.

2011 saw him acting in his first role as a police officer, as Detective Edwards in the British film noir Jack Falls, alongside his Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels co-stars Jason Flemying and Alan Ford.

 Presenting
Fletcher tried his hand at presenting for the now defunct Channel 4 show GamesMaster in 1993. The TV show was in its third series. Dexter was originally slated to be a special guest on the third series but was then asked to be presenter, after Dominik Diamond left the show due to his disapproval at McDonald's landing a sponsorship deal with them.

Fletcher recalls presenting GamesMaster was 'very unforgiving' and 'quite intimidating'. He claimed the most difficult part was 'just getting up, taking a deep breath, and going out there and doing it'. His style of presenting was heavily criticised by viewers who said his 'in your face' method was too 'OTT' and did not suit the show. Some viewers suspected his genuine Cockney accent was put on for effect. The series finished in 1994 and Dominik Diamond returned for the last four series until the show ended in January 1998.

 Voice work
Fletcher has been the voice for McDonald's television adverts and is the narrator of The Game audio book written by Neil Strauss. He also narrated the Five series Airforce Afghanistan.
