And here’s some fun facts I bet you didn’t know:

8 Famous Electricians Who Became Legends

1. Elvis Presley
Can you imagine the King of Rock and Roll turning up at your house, electrical toolkit in hand? Before his days of intergalactic stardom, Elvis Presley began training to be an electrician. He famously remarked: “I suppose I got rewired the wrong way round somewhere along the line”.

2. George Harrison
The ‘quiet’ Beatle was, once upon a time, an apprentice electrician. By his own admission he wasn’t very successful, admitting in a 1966 interview, “I kept blowing things up, so I got dumped”.

3. Sir David Jason
He has one of the most recognisable faces on television, but before he became one of the best loved British actors, Sir David Jason worked as an electrician. After a number of years in the job, he eventually gave it all up to pursue his acting career.

4. Stuart Pearce
While playing for his local non-league team Wealdstone, Stuart Pearce was working as both an electrician and a plumber. Around five years later, he was recruited as a professional footballer by Coventry City – the beginning of a long and successful playing career.

5. Rowan Atkinson
It’s hard to believe that the man behind Mr Bean could be trusted with a live wire, but Rowan Atkinson does in fact have a Masters degree in Electrical Engineering, obtained from The Queen’s College, Oxford.

6. Sir Bobby Charlton
At his mother’s request, Sir Bobby Charlton worked briefly as an apprentice electrical engineer before beginning his professional footballing career. As one of the true greats of the game, we’re glad he turned his back on the trade!

7. Alfred Hitchcock
The mind that brought you The Birds and Psycho was well-schooled in all things electrical, having studied engineering in London at the tender age of 15. Hitchcock went on to become one of the most revered movie makers of all time.

8. Neil Armstrong
The first man to set foot on the moon spent much of his academic life studying aeronautical engineering; knowledge that was eventually put to very literal use with his historic voyage into space.
