Herbert Standing (13 November 1846 – 5 December 1923) was a British stage and screen actor and the patriarch of the Standing family of actors. He was the father of numerous children, many who had careers in theatre and cinema. Toward the end of his life, he appeared in many Hollywood silent films.

Standing began in theatre in 1867, and turned to films in 1913.[1]

Standing's children include Sir Guy Standing, Wyndham Standing, Percy Standing, Jack Standing, Herbert Standing Jr. and Aubrey Standing.[2] Grandchildren involved in show business were Joan Standing, Kay Hammond, Guy Standing Jr. and Jack Standing Jr.[3] Present-day character actor John Standing (son of Kay Hammond) is a great-grandson.
