Rowan Atkinson life
I enjoy racing historic motorcars from the '50s and '60s. The seed of my interest was planted when I was about 12 years old and took over my mother's Morris Minor. I drove it around my father's farm. But my favorite car is still a McLaren F1, which I have had for 10 years.

Rowan Atkinson hate
But generally speaking, I tend to be quiet and introspective.
Rowan Atkinson end
No, no, I was only funny on stage, really. I, I, think I was funny as a person toward my classmates when I was very young. You know, when I was a child, up to about the age of 12.

Rowan Atkinson life
Of course, some would say if you have a performing inclination, then you should become a lawyer. That's a platform we use, or a priest. You know, anywhere you lecture and pontificate to people.
Rowan Atkinson people
And what's interesting about him as a comic character is that the custard pie hardly ever ends up on his face.
