Atkinson portrayed the titular role in the successful series from 1990 until 1995, before later taking on the films “Bean Movie” in 1997 and “Mr Bean’s Holiday” in 2007.

Meanwhile, Atkinson, in an interview with this week’s issue of Radio Times, said: “Having made an animated TV series, we’re now in the foothills of developing an animated film for Mr Bean. It’s easier for me to perform the character vocally than visually.

I don’t much enjoy playing him. The weight of responsibility is not pleasant. I find it stressful and exhausting, and I look forward to the end of it. This is because the responsibility for making that series funny was on many shoulders, not just mine.”

The English actor isn’t surprised about the success of his character, “Mr Bean’s success has never surprised me. Watching an adult behaving in a childish way without being remotely aware of his inappropriateness is fundamentally funny. The fact the comedy is visual rather than verbal means it has been successful internationally, too.”. He said.


“Mr Bean” is a British sitcom created by Rowan Atkinson and Richard Curtis. It is produced by Tiger Aspect and stars Atkinson as the title character. Originally broadcast on ITV, the series began with the pilot on 1st January 1990 and ending with “The Best Bits of Mr Bean” on 15th December 1995.
