I suppose I’m not the just one who adore Mr. Bean among the readers and writers, Mr.Bean is such a selfish, problematic, self-complacent character but harmful for who live around him as well. While watching Mr. Bean, we having fun and also watching art of Rowan Atkinson .I think if Bean would live in the same neighborhood with me. How would it be? Unendurable or funny ? . What ever, let’s see what we don’t know about Mr.Bean or what we didn’t ever hear.
IT’S been 25 years since the world first met Mr Bean.
Since then, the largely silent character’s escapades have aired in more than 245 territories worldwide and made actor Rowan Atkinson a household name (not to mention a very wealthy man).
It all began with a mirror:
Rowan Atkinson created the character of Mr Bean when he was studying his master’s degree at Oxford. “I was asked in my first term at Oxford to do a sketch in this one night show … and I’d never written anything and I’m not naturally a writer, so I just had to invent five minutes of something at 48 hours notice,” said the British star. “I just stood in front of the mirror and started to mess about with my face basically and this strange, surreal, non-speaking character evolved.”
Mr Bean wasn’t always going to be called MrBean.“We started with (Mr) Zucchini” said Atkinson.“Or Mr Potato, or Mr Cauliflower or Mr Cabbage. And then we just thought, Bean. It’s short, it’s silly.“It was either that or the name of a bird, like Mr Wren. Birds and vegetables tend to be the funniest names.”
Mr Bean is basically a child:“Whenever we try to think of Mr Bean and how he would react in certain situations that we’re thinking of putting him in, I always imagine him as a nine-year-old boy,” said Atkinson.
“They’re sort of anarchists at heart and I think that’s what Mr Bean is, he’s an anarchist.” “He’ll obey the rules as long as they suit him.” I guess that also explains why his best friend is a teddy bear.
A good time, not a long time:
Can you believe there are actually only 14 episodes of Mr Bean?
The TV series, which aired from 1990-1995, later inspired two films: 1997s Bean: The Ultimate Disaster Movie (which made $356 million worldwide) and 2007s Mr. Bean’s Holiday (which made $325 million worldwide).
When people spot Rowan Atkinson in public, they tend to call him Mr Bean rather than his actual name, which annoys the actor a little as he’s not actually a huge fan of the character.
“I do have a love/hate relationship with him in that I love playing him because he’s such an unpleasant, selfish, childish, ridiculous figure, but at the same time I don’t like him as a person.”
“He’s a character I’ve been playing for 20 or 30 years and I’m very happy to say goodbye to Mr Bean now,” Atkinson said.
“I don’t think I’m going to play the character again because I just don’t want to see him getting old.”
