Rowan Atkinson net worth: How Mr Bean and Blackadder actor made his eye-watering fortune


Rowan Atkinson, 66, is a hugely successful actor who started his career in radio in 1979. His comedy shows for BBC Radio 3 were called The Atkinson People and in the same year, Rowan did a one-off pilot for London Weekend Television called Canned Laughter. He has now starred in some of the most successful comedy shows and films but how much has he earned?

He added to his net worth by performing in The Nerd alongside Christian Bale, who was just ten years old at the time.

In 1990 the iconic character of Mr.Bean was created and was first introduced to audiences during a TV special.

From this year, Mr. Bean was regularly broadcasted on television until 1995.

It is a role that Rowan is perhaps best known for.

In 2003, Rowan starred in the first Johnny English film which involved him paying the parodying character of James Bond.

There has now been three films and each film turned over around £140million.

His most recent acting appearance was in Maigret, a short four part series. 

As well as his BAFTA which he received in 1981, the actor also received an Olivier Award for his 1981 West End theatre performance in Rowan Atkinson in Revue. 

He was also nominated for a European Film Award for Best Actor for his role as Johnny England and was also appointed a CBE in the 2013 Birthday Honours for services to drama and charity. 

In his personal life, Rowan married Sunetra Sastry in 1990 and they had two children together before divorcing in 2015.

The same year, the actor began a relationship with comedian Louise Ford and the couple had a child together in 2017.

Rowan is also said to have a love for cars, with his collection worth millions.

Celebrity Net Worth reported that his collection features a Honda NSX, Jaguar Mk7, Aston Martin DB2, vintage Ford Falcon, 1939 BMW 321, and a Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe.

He is also said to own several properties all over England as well as owning his own production company called Hindmeck.
