Early Life

On January 6, 1955, Rowan Atkinson was birthed in Consett, England. With his two brothers, Rowan was nurtured by his farmer father in an Anglican home. A 3rd brother passed away as a young child. Good grades allowed Rowan Atkinson to enroll at Newcastle University, where he finished his studies in electrical engineering. In 1978, he graduated with MSc in Electrical Engineering from The Queen’s College in Oxford.

Atkinson was initially eager to earn a doctorate, but he soon developed a passion for acting. At this time, he had written sketches for an Oxford comedy company and was already quite active in the performing community. He belonged to the Oxford University Dramatic Society as well.


The radio industry was Rowan Atkinson’s first place of employment. In 1979, he served as the host of the Atkinson People radio program. In this one-man show, Rowan pretended to be interviewing different people while actually flaunting his amazing vocal acting capability. His 1st arrival on tv during this time was with Canned Laughing. Later, he was the host of the parody news program Not the Nine O’clock News. Together with Monty Python members, he co-produced The Secret Policeman’s Ball, which helped him gain recognition in the theatre.

A turning point in Atkinson’s career occurred in 1983. One of his most remembered undertakings, the television program Black Adder, gave him the lead role. He made his feature film début the following year in Never Say Never Again, an “unofficial” James Bond movie. Afterward, he made an appearance in the short movie Dead on Time. Atkinson continued his theatrical career in 1984 by collaborating with Christian Bale, who was at the age of ten at the moment, in the film The Nerd.

Black Adder’s 2nd season’s production took several years because of financial limitations. Contrarily, the second season’s premiere was in 1986. This remained Atkinson’s main emphasis over the following few years as Black Adder II developed into Black Adder Goes Forth in 1989 and Black Adder the Third in 1987. Among the most viewed English comedy is based on this series. At the conclusion of Black Adder’s final season, Atkinson appeared in the film The Tall Man.

When Mr. Bean was presented to audiences in a television special in 1990, it was another big step forward for Atkinson. From that point on, Mr. Bean had a regular tv broadcast until 1995, when Atkinson started making films based on the character. In 1990, Rowan Atkinson took part in The Witches, another movie. Later, he starred in Hot Shots! Part Deux is a parody movie. In 1994, Rowan Atkinson played two pivotal parts that solidified his position in the movie business.

He performed Zazu in Disney’s The Lion King for the second time. He also sang “I Can’t Wait To Be King” in the beloved Disney movie.

Atkinson made a cameo performance on the sitcom The Thin Blue Line in 1995, making a comeback to television. Up until 1996, he was a constant in the program. Atkinson finished shooting his 1st Mr. Bean movie in 1997. With a US$18 million budget, Bean was a box office hit, earning more than US$250 million. The following few years saw a gradual advancement in Rowan Atkinson’s career before he made an appearance in the 2001 movie Rat Race. In the year after, he made an appearance in Scooby-Doo and began an animated Mr. Bean series that ran until 2019.

Mr. Bean’s Holiday, Rowan Atkinson’s 2nd Mr. Bean movie, was launched in 2007. It was a box office triumph, earning over US$ 232 million on a comparatively low budget, much like the previous movie in the series. Atkinson made a theatre comeback in 2009 with a performance of Oliver! In 2013, Quarantine’s Terms introduced a brand-new theatrical role. Atkinson appeared in the four-part Maigret miniseries from 2016 to 2017. Mr. Bean Net Worth is US$ 150 Million as of January 2023.

Favorites Quotes from Mr. Bean

Favorites Quote 1 from Mr. Bean

“Mr. Bean is essentially a child trapped in the body of a man. All cultures identify with children in a similar way, so he has this bizarre global outreach.”

Favorites Quote 2 from Mr. Bean

“I mean I can do it when I’m very relaxed, and with good friends, then I think I can be amusing.”

-Rowan Atkinson
Favorites Quote 4 from Mr. Bean

“The clear problem of the outlawing of insult is that too many things can be interpreted as such. Criticism, ridicule, sarcasm, merely stating an alternative point of view to the orthodoxy, can be interpreted as insult.”

Essential Life Lessons from Mr. Bean

1. Talk is cheap.

Mr. Bean never spoke, aside from incoherent mumblings, but Rowan Atkinson managed to convey every emotion and situation without the need for words. Life lesson: we can all make a little less noise.

2. If you don’t have what you need, improvise!

Have you forgotten to buy a paintbrush with that tin of paint? You can always use your best friend instead. Life lesson: having a stuffed animal as a best friend can come in handy.

3. Be yourself

Mr. Bean is odd, childish, impulsive, and sometimes repulsive, but no one can ever say he isn’t at ease in his own skin. Who else would you want to be?

4. Take pleasure in the small things

Remember when Mr. Bean sat on a park bench and rejoiced as he prepared his midday meal? Especially when it came to the live goldfish for his sandwich? Who cares what others think if it makes you happy?

5. Never stick your head up a turkey’s bum.

That one is self-explanatory.
