Rowan Atkinson, born
Jan. 6, 1955 in the UK, started his acting career in
1979 on the UK comedy TV circuit. He is probably
most recognized for his role as Mr. Bean on the 1989 TV
series and various Mr. Bean movies. Atkinson also
starred as Sir Edmund Blackadder on an 80's TV series
that we believe was probably only available in the
United Kingdom. He was also on an early 80's
variety show called "Not the Nine O'Clock News."
His 80's movie list includes Dead on Time (1982), Never
Say Never Again (1983), The Appointments of Dennis
Jennings (1988), and The Tall Guy (1989). Atkinson
is a pretty funny actor in those Bean movies, we he
continues to make. Quick Fact: Atkinson is a
super car buff who once crashed his big money McLaren F1
into the back of a $600 Mini.
