Biography

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).
