Actor and screenwriter. Third child of Eric and Ella May Atkinson. He graduated in Electronic Engineering from Newcastle University and Oxford University, where he moved in 1975 and where he met Richard Curtis with whom he began writing short plays presented at the Oxford Playhouse and later at the Edinburgh Fringe. In 1978 he stands out with a show at the Hampstead Theater thanks to which the first offers to work on television arrive. After seeing him in a couple of TV productions including the short “Canned Laughter” (which he wrote and starred in), in 1979 the BBC executives decided to entrust him with a series of his own. Thus was born the award-winning “Not the Nine O’Clock News”, which he wrote and performed and which earned him a Britsh Academy Award and the title of ‘BBC Character of the Year’. Further success came with his ‘one-man-show’ presented in 1981 at London’s Globe Theater (at the time he was the youngest performer of this genre in the West End) with which he won the award as ‘Comedian of the Year’ of Society of West End Theaters. In 1983 he reunites with his friend Richard Curtis and together they write the first edition of the series “The Black Adder”. The success is such that the first edition is joined by the following “Blackadder II” (1986), “Blackadder the Third” (1987), “Blackadder Goes Forth” and the TV films “Blackadder’s Christmas Carol” and “Blackadder: The Cavalier Years” both from 1988. In 1989 he creates the character that will make him famous all over the world: the bungler and big kid “Mr. Bean”. In Italy the television series was broadcast late due to his request because being passionate about Sardinia he did not want to be recognized during his holidays. Given the theatrical and television successes, film offers could not fail to arrive. The debut dates back to 1983 with the participation in “Never say never” (the last James Bond film starring Sean Connery) while in 1989 he starred with Jeff Goldblum in the film “Two meters of allergy”, directorial debut of Mel Smith (who previously collaborated with Atkinson and Curtis on “Not the Nine O’Clock News”). In 1994 he is the clumsy priest in Mike Newell’s “Four Weddings and a Funeral” and lends his voice to hornbill Zazu in the original version of Disney’s “Lion King”. In 1997 the character of Mr. Bean arrives on the big screen in “Mr. Bean – The Last Catastrophe” directed by Mel Smith and written by Richard Curtis followed ten years later “Mr. Bean’s Holiday” always written with Curtis but directed by Steve Bendelack. Since 1990 he has been married to Sunetra Sastry with whom he had children Lily and Ben. He is a big fan of cars and motor racing. In his spare time he rides go-karts and writes for the English magazine CAR.
