Alan Fletcher has many strings to his bow, but he is predominately known to millions of people all around the world as “Doctor Karl Kennedy” from Australia’s longest running drama Neighbours. Alan has portrayed the role of Dr Karl for 31 years of the program’s 35 year history.
An actor for over 30 years Alan has performed in over 60 theatrical productions, numerous television programs, mini-series and feature films and written and performed for radio drama and comedy.
Alan has gained a reputation as a fine music theatre performer and it was his interest in music as a guitarist and lyricist that inspired the creation of his rock band Waiting Room with friends Tommy Rando and Chris Hawker. Waiting Room released their debut album In the Waiting Room in May 2005.
In addition to his acting, Alan pursued a career in photography specializing in portraiture. In that time he gained a reputation as one of best headshot photographers within the Performing Arts community in Melbourne, Australia. This love of photography led to his first major network television credit in 2018 as Executive Producer/Presenter on his photography travel show Photo No. 6 – which sold to numerous territories including Australia, the UK and USA.
