who am I?

His fate is one that Derek Jacobi has tasted twice.

He knew Indiana Jones, has hung with droids and jedi, thrice contended for a Larry, winning once. He's been a knight (often), an archbishop (twice), a dean, a priest, a doctor.

My money's on Oliver Ford Davis:

He was Sio Bibble in "Star Wars", he played a ship's captain in an episode of the "Young Indiana Jones Chronicles", he played archbishops in "Johnny English" and "Bertie and Elizabeth", her was the Dean of Windsor in "Mrs Brown", and he was Doctor Harris in "Sense and Sensibility". He also played various knighted characters on different movies or TV shows (like "Sir Richard Bowman" on Spooks, for example).

Also, he won the Laurence Olivier Award in 1990, and was nominated in 2003 and 2007.

That should seal it.

I am firmly in the Oliver Ford Davies camp as well.

Ian McDiarmid?

I'm sure I'm totally wrong, as I'm basing this solely off of the Indiana Jones and Star Wars hint, but both Christopher Lee and Ian McDiarmid had guest roles in the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles. I have no idea if they apply to the other hints.

Ian McDiarmid?

He'll be Maester Cressen, his fate is being poisoned, just as Derek Jocobi's characterds were in "I, Claudius", and "Hamlet"

Over at WinterIsComing...
The best guess seems to be Ian McDiarmid, followed by Oliver Ford Davies.

Funny thing about Julian Glover - nobody seems to recognise him in the role as Pycelle - I had to check the IMDB page to confirm as well. :-)

How about Oliver Ford Davies?
Jul. 19th, 2011 06:11 pm (UTC)
Is it Ian McDiarmid as Cressen? He would be brilliant!

Harrison Ford? Just kidding lol!

I have no idea honestly.

Stephen Dillane?

This is it, the FB page just announced it. He's playing Stannis!

Sadly, deceased.

Ian McDiarmid is my guess - he fits the Larry's clue (won in '82, nominated in '83 and '91), was in the Young Indy thing and Star Wars. Fantastic if it is him!

My money is on John Rhys-Davies
Jul. 19th, 2011 08:57 pm (UTC)
Oliver Ford Davis, with those three Oliviers, is my bet...likely Cressen.
Jul. 19th, 2011 09:25 pm (UTC)
you nailed it
You guys are as sharp as ever.

Yes, it is OLIVER FORD DAVIES as Maester Cressen.

Congratulations to all those who guessed right. And for those who guessed wrong, well, thanks for playing.

It's Ewan McGregor

It looks like people are on the money with Oliver Ford Davies as Measter Cressen, but I was thinking Anthony (C-3PO) Daniels. He's got the Indiana Jones and Star Wars thing covered, but I'm not so sure about the rest.
The reason I think many people don't recognise Glover as Pycelle is that with the beard and his advancing age (76) he doesn't look like he used to. I really only remember him in Dr Who and For Your Eyes Only.
Jul. 20th, 2011 07:47 am (UTC)
Actually, the reason I don't recognize him is that I'm in Afghanistan (have no HBO), and was just going off the clues in the post.

John Rhys-Davies?

Can I just say that I've met Julian Glover? It was at a party with Tom Stoppard.

No, really!

Ian McDiarmid
Ian McDiarmid.....aka Emperor Palpatine

I just Googled Oliver Ford Davies, and happened upon this remarkable photo of him:

Could this be a sneak peak of a scene from season 2?? Is Rowan Atkinson really playing Stannis!?!?! ;)

Ahahaha, awesome. Mr Bean should play Melisandre.
Jul. 20th, 2011 05:50 am (UTC)
Excellent piece of casting, it's unfortunate his role will be so short.
Jul. 20th, 2011 07:40 pm (UTC)
Derek Jacobi will forever be my Archibald Craven, from the Hallmark television special of the Secret Garden. I wore the tape out as a kid.
