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.

That was my first thought. But God, I hope not.

So it isn't Julian Glover but is a Laurence Olivier Award winning actor. I really needed something to think about today. This is wonderful.

This is a wild guess, because I don't understand all the clues (and the Indiana Jones connection is tenuous), but - Liam Neeson?

Oliver Ford Davies? Wikipedia says he's been an archbishop twice, he was in Star Wars, he was in the Young Indiana Jones chroncile, he's been a deacon and a knight and a doctor and so on. And twice nominated for the Laurence "Larry" Olivier Award!

Given his age, I'd guess Cressen? He'd make a fine Ser Denys Mallister, too, if for some reason he was brought in early. Or Lord Hoster?

David Warner as Craster? Just my gut feeling since he and Jacobi both played characters called Claudius ("I, Claudius" and "Hamlet")

The Olivier Award or Laurence Olivier Awardis to give it's full name is probably the most prestigious Theatre award in England and is commomly known as a larry

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.
