Lechtenbrink was born on August 18, 1944 as the son of an employee in Cranz / East Prussia, but grew up in Bremen and Hamburg, where he ended up as a refugee child. At the age of eight he took on speaking roles in the NDR children's radio. After appearing in "Die Brücke", he completed an acting training at the Hamburg State University of Fine Arts and at the private Hamburg drama studio Freese. At the age of 26 he had already played around 60 stage and 50 television roles. "I played everything: from murderers to lovers, from criminals to comedians," he said in a dpa interview on his 70th birthday.

Lechtenbrink also became known for his unmistakable sonorous voice: As a dubbing actor, he used his smoky timbre as the German voice of Kris Kristofferson and Burt Reynolds.

In 1995 he also took on the job of artistic director at the Bad Hersfeld Festival, and in 2004 he took over the management of the Ernst-Deutsch-Theater in Hamburg for three years.
