London, Sep 7 (IANS) At 56, Rowan Atkinson, best remembered as Mr.Bean, doubts if viewers will get a chance to see any new adventures of the comical character because now he feels too old to play it.

“I’ve got a feeling I probably won’t play the character (Mr.Bean) again. Never say never, but I just feel I’m getting too old for it. I’ve always liked Mr Bean as a cartoon-like figure, who doesn’t really age much,” dailymail.co.uk quoted Atkinson as saying.

Atkinson describes the character as “a child in a grown man’s body”.

“I’ve always seen him as an ageless and timeless being and I’m clearly not ageless and timeless. The older I get, I feel I am less qualified to play him,” he added.

Mr.Bean first came as an ITV series which ran for five years from 1990. It became a rage, after which films were also made on the character.
