Mr. Bean goes to Paris… #fridayinterview #crimefiction #mysteries

“He’s fairly bland. He hasn’t got a French accent or a limp or a lisp and he doesn’t love opera. There isn’t a tremendous amount to get hold of in character terms. He’s just an ordinary guy doing a slightly extraordinary job in a quite unpleasant world.” That’s English actor Rowan Atkinson on Georges Simenon‘s Parisian detective, Inspector Jules Maigret, played by Atkinson in a new ITV series. His conversation with The Version is this week’s #fridayinterview.
