Rowan Atkinson


Born: 6 January 1955
Birthplace: Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, England
Best known as: Comic character Mr. Bean

A rubber-faced comedian and actor, Rowan Atkinson is especially famous in Great Britain, first as a cult favorite in the television series Blackadder, then as an even bigger star in the series Mr. Bean. A slapstick film version of Mr. Bean was an international hit in 1997, and Atkinson has since appeared in small roles in big screen comedies, including Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994, with Hugh Grant), Rat Race (2001, with Whoopi Goldberg) and Love Actually (2003, with Liam Neeson). He's also starred as a bumbling spy in the spoofs Johnny English (2003) and Johnny English Reborn (2011)
