Danny Boyle for BBC

Casting Director Scotland, Chariots of Fire/Mr. Bean section
Danny Boyle’s master stroke for the Olympics opening ceremony sees Buckingham Palace and the Olympic Stadium as the hosts to a visual spectacle and storied performance to a global audience of over a billion. Rowan Atkinson’s homage to Chariots of Fire proved to be iconic and will go down in history as being one of the most memorable scenarios of the ceremony.
