Rowan Atkinson is best recognized for playing Mr. Bean, a goofy, silly, and childish character who is a bumbling loner with a series of misadventures in life. He plays it perfectly that you’d be shocked how Atkinson holds an Electrical Engineering degree from Newcastle University and a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from The Queens College, Oxford, the same college that made him an Honorary Fellow in 2006.
