Mr. Bean Fame Declared Dead: Rowan Atkinson, on the other hand, is 66 years old and very much alive. Rowan Atkinson was also the victim of a death hoax in 2016, when a Facebook page titled ‘R.I.P. Rowan Atkinson’ claimed that the actor was discovered unconscious at his San Francisco home.
Rowan Atkinson, also known as Mr. Bean around the world, revealed earlier this year that he did not enjoy playing the beloved comic character who has now become synonymous with his name. According to a Daily Mail report, the actor stated that the only role he truly enjoyed playing during his lengthy career was Black-ladder. That was due to the fact that he did not feel the “weight of responsibility” to be funny all of the time.
Mr. Bean, which aired from 1990 to 1995, became an iconic role and one of the funniest comic shows in the UK. It spawned an animated spin-off as well as two big-screen films.
