Retirement of Mr. Bean Live

Rowan Atkinson announced his intention to retire Mr Bean in November 2012. “I increasingly feel I’m going to do a lot less of the stuff that has been most financially successful for me – basically fairly physical, somewhat infantile,” Atkinson told The Daily Telegraph’s Review.

“Apart from the fact that your physical abilities begin to deteriorate, I believe that being childlike in your 50s gets a little melancholy. You must exercise caution.” He’s also said that the role stereotyped him to some extent. Despite these remarks, Atkinson stated in 2016 that the character of Mr Bean would never be retired.
