alan fletcherthe princes

Alan Fletcher was born in Perth, Western Australia in 1957. He began his career in theatre, working extensively with The National Theatre (Perth) in what was essentially an apprenticeship, learning from great talents such as Warren Mitchell, Honor Blackman, Bill Kerr, Tom Stoppard and Tim Brooke-Taylor.

After three years of solid work without a break, now aged 23, Alan headed for Sydney, and immediately landed a guest role on the Australian television drama series, "The Young Doctors".

A trip to New Zealand followed, touring with Arthur Lowe in the comedy "Beyond a Joke". Upon returning to Sydney, he auditioned for and was accepted into the National Institute for Dramatic Art (NIDA), which coincided with his also being offered a year's contract with the highly popular drama series "Cop Shop". Television won and Alan came to the nation's attention as Constable Frank Rossi, which established him as the new hearthrob on the block.

Many roles in television, film and theatre came soon after including the mini series' 'Sword of Honour' and 'All the Rivers Run II', the NBC movie 'Mercy Mission' (aka 'The Flight From Hell'), opposite Scott Bakula, and his AFI-nominated performance in the critically acclaimed ABC political drama series 'Embassy'. He also made a guest appearance on 'The Love Boat' as Morgan Fairchild's fiance, when The Boat docked in Australia for a series of episodes.

His film roles have included 'Gross Misconduct', 'Beyond My Reach', 'What the Moon Saw', 'Fran' and 'Cool Change'.

He juggled all this with his continuing theatrical career, working in lead roles with the Melbourne Theatre Company continuously for three years, while also appearing on television comedy shows and ABC Radio.

In 1994, he was offered the role of "Dr Karl Kennedy" in the infamous Australian soap, 'Neighbours' - a role he continues to play to this date. He has played the villian for the last three seasons in UK pantomime, been in the musical 'Mame' and made appearances on several documentaries. He is also one of Melbourne's leading voice-over artists.
