    Video Summary : Interview with Rowan Atkinson: 'I'm happy to say goodbye to Mr. Bean'

  • 1 What does 'I don't want to die by the hands of the Swiss' mean?

    Atkinson said it was a funny line, referring to the fact that Swiss people are not very well defined as a race, as they are quite discrete and don't have a clear identity like French people, for example, so it would be funny to say something like that. 

  • 2 I don't have any problem with Swiss people

    Atkinson said that he doesn't have any problem with Swiss people and that racial jokes are still funny but a person has to be careful.

  • 3 Do you watch your movies?

    Atkinson said he sees them during production over and over because he is a part of the editing team, but after they are produced he doesn't see them.

  • 4 I don't see myself in the movies

    Atkinson said that when he watches his movies he doesn't see himself, but he just sees a character that he plays. See Why Mr bean stopped.

  • 5 I am scared of improvisation

    Atkinson said that even though he is scared of improvisation, he realized that he is better at it than he thought he was.

  • 6 Why didn't you use Aston Martin in the movie?

    Atkinson said he has nothing against Aston martin but he wanted something different in the movie Johnny English because James bond always used Aston martins. He said he called Rolls Royce and asked them to put in the 9-liters experimental engine they never put in their cars.

  • 7 I have a love/hate relationship with Mr Bean

    Atkinson said that he loves playing Mr bean but more people call him Mr bean than Mr Atkinson and this is a shame.
