Rowan Atkinson says he’ll never appear as Mr Bean again as it’s ‘exhausting’

Rowan Atkinson has revealed he will never play Mr Bean again. He says playing the loveable childish buffoon — who made him a global star — is “exhausting”.

But he will still voice him in the animated versions, with a cartoon film in the pipeline.

Rowan Atkinson, 65, said: “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.”

Mr Bean first appeared on ITV in 1990, before spawning films and a cartoon series.

His Facebook page is the tenth-most popular in the world.
