Rowan Atkinson's Biography

Rowan Atkinson was born on a farm in Durham on January 8th, 1956. He got his Electrical engineering degree on Oxford university. His comedy career started at the Edinburgh fringe. He was also a late member of "Monty Python".
Rowan is a comedian in Blackadder and Mr. Bean. He has made an appearanced in a couple of big films (Four Weddings And A Funeral, The Lion King), but he got to play some serious parts in these movies which was a bit of a bummer, because his great sense of humour wasn't completely utilized. He's playing the part of Raymond Fowler in "The Thin Blue Line", a Ben Elton comedy. He did a serious role for BBC's "Heroes and Villains - Full Throttle" about car maniac "Tim Birkin"

Which brings me to the following: he's definitely a "car-freak", he owns some fast cars (Aston Martin Vantages, etc.). He also writes articles for the British car magazine "CAR" - quite an original name! :)
