Bean no more

by Quentin Jones

National Photographic Portrait Prize 2013 Finalist

English actor, Rowan Atkinson, is famous for his Mr Bean character, but does not want to be that character all the time. During a recent visit, I was very careful not to make any mention of Mr Bean or the television show, and instead talked about cars, which is one of his passions. As a result, he was happy to be himself in this portrait.
