Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

A dignified stage actor from England who had appeared opposite the likes of Edward Terry, Sir Johnston Forbes-Robertson, and Alla Nazimova, the tall, ramrod-straight Thomas Holding lent his not-inconsiderable presence to numerous American silent films between 1915 and his death in 1929. Starring opposite Pauline Frederick in his first film, the Italy-lensed The Eternal City (1915), Holding went on to become one of the era's great supporting actors and can be seen today as Buckingham in Douglas Fairbanks' lavish version of Dumas' The Three Musketeers (1920).
