Mr Bean impersonator woos China
British actor Nigel Dixon is trying to calm frayed nerves in the central Chinese city of Wuhan with his online social media miniseries Mr Pea. The 53-year-old, who does an impersonation of British sitcom character Mr Bean, traveled to the region at the epicenter of the coronavirus epidemic in early January. He refused to leave Wuhan even as it went into lockdown, saying he worried that he could spread the virus and that he wanted to show support to the people in China.
