Rowan Sebastian Atkinson is an English actor, comedian, and writer, best known for his work on the Mr. Bean. Atkinson himself has stated that Jacques Tati’s character Monsieur Hulot was the main inspiration. Several sequels to Mr. Bean appeared on television until 1995, and the character later appeared in a feature film.
Ιn the first episode, Act 2: The Beach, Bean heads to the Peacehaven beach, running the Reliant Regal off the road once again in the process. Reaching the beachfront, he looks forward to his swim in the sea but finds himself unable to change into his swimming trunks without exposing himself to a man wearing sunglasses sitting in a nearby deckchair. Not wishing to travel back up the steps he climbed down to change, he puts his trunks on over his trousers and eventually manages to remove his trousers by pulling one leg out, passing the trouser leg through his trunks and then pulling the trousers off the other leg. Although this plan works, Bean then sees the man grabbing his white cane and leaving, revealing that he was blind all along.
