In fact, he suffered terribly as a child because he stuttered a lot and he has a funny look. His peers tease him a lot saying he is an alien and that he was strange. This has made him become very shy and a withdrawn kid. Because of how he was mocked he decided to go into science to find solace.

Not only his peer mocked him. One of his teachers told him that there was nothing fantastic about him. And that he didn’t expect Rowan Atkinson to do anything fantastic in science. But Rowan did one of the most astounding things. He got admitted into Oxford University. This made everyone to be surprised. 

Something happened during his university days. He started falling in love with acting. But he couldn’t go into acting because he was shy and felt his stuttering was a hinderance. So, he didn’t show up in any tv show or movie till when he got his degree in Electrical Engineering.
