Happy Birthday: Rowan Atkinson

WILDsound Writing and Film Festival Review

Born: January 6, 1955 in Consett, County Durham, England, UK

If I’m denied words, Mr. Bean’s physicality and attitude to life is what I seem to acquire. In 1989, we put him on TV and no doubt the motivation was a belief that we had a character that could live in other markets and other countries. I was always envious of the fact that so many British musical artists in the late eighties, Phil Collins or David Bowie or Duran Duran or someone like that, assumed an international marketplace for their product, whereas British comedians don’t. And I thought we have a tool here that will enable us to do that.
