Rowan Atkinson says:
‘I’ve got a feeling I probably won’t play the character [Mr Bean] again.
‘Never say never, but I just feel I’m getting too old for it. I’ve always liked Mr Bean as a cartoon-like figure, who doesn’t really age much.
‘I’ve always seen him as an ageless and timeless being and I’m clearly not ageless and timeless.
‘The older I get, I feel I am less qualified to play him.’
