Rowan Atkinson Was a Phd Student in Electrical Engineering

Would you believe that Rowan Atkinson was a PhD student, and he got into acting to overcome a mild stutter? It would hardly seem possible that the actor made famous by characters such as Mr Bean and Blackadder could have at one stage had a stutter, let alone been a PhD student. But that was the exact scenario for a young Rowan Atkinson in the late 1970’s.

Rowan Atkinson is a comedic British actor, most famous for his role as the bumbling, fumbling Mr Bean. The character Mr Bean is clearly a person that is a few sandwiches short of a picnic. Generally self centered and childlike in most aspects of life, Bean could arguable be seen as the complete opposite of Rowan Atkinson. That is apart from his speech and intelligence.
