Standing was born in London. Between an appearance in a 1964 episode of the TV series of The Saint and his final appearance in the 1973 opening season of The Tomorrow People in which he played Ginge, the biker heavy who became the Tomorrow People's ally, he appeared in a considerable number of dramas such as Z-Cars and the soap opera The Newcomers, and episodes of fantasy television series such as Adam Adamant Lives!, The Champions, and Ace of Wands.
Standing is probably best remembered for his role as Arthur in the 1969 film, The Italian Job, who was, as Michael Caine's character Croker famously observed "only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" after he had totally destroyed a van with gelignite.
