He’s english but his family is interracial. His daughter lily atkinson is very pretty. I never knew she was part east indian.

I have seen her daughter on pics and before I knew her father is MR BEAN and her mother INDIAN I knew she must be either of Italian, Indian descent or of Jewish

because she has very dark eyes

he looks very british

but i remember there is a thin line between the brits and the mediterannians (sic) because most brits look dark but they have light brown eyes or green eyes like ROWAN ATKINSON

but if Mr. Atkinson genius would have dark brown eyes he would be seen as arab or italian

I dont brits are that dark. They tend to have some shade of brown hair and blue eyes.
