      He'll soon be in a couple of two-hour long films playing the French detective Jules Maigret. He had a major part in the opening of the 2012 Olympics. He was in a couple of plays as Fagin in Oliver! and in Quartermaine's Terms. He does yearly skits for Red Nose Day, the comedy charity event. His wife of nearly twenty-five years, Sunetra Sastry, and him got divorced about a year ago and he's recently moved in with his Quartermaine's Term co-star Louise Ford. His daughter Lily is hoping for a singing career. I believe he still likes to race. At any rate he broke records on Top Gear back in 2011 but was shortly beat by Matt LeBlanc.

    Thank god Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) is not dead I was a little bit sad cause I heard a rumor that said he was dead.

    I checked online committing suicide but really because they kicked him out of Johnny English I mean he is Johnny English how can they kick him out.

    But why did they want us to believe that Rowan Atkinson was dead? I thought he was really dead in real life it's pretty not a funny joke to tell the whole world that their favourate actor is dead mean while he is still alive,it's very mean and shame on those people who made us believe this BIG LIE

    Who does this kind of bad joke? He is such a person that everybody can boast of and he is the ultimate source of sparkling wit and humour that is interspersed with rib tickling comedy.
