Thomas J. Holding (25 January 1880 – 4 May 1929) was a British-born stage and film actor.


Born in England in 1880, Holding possibly had an extensive stage career in his native Britain before arriving in the United States.[citation needed] He was popular in American silent films during the World War I years. His first films were in several features starring the actress Pauline Frederick. Holding died in 1929 of a heart attack in his dressing room while acting on Broadway according to Variety of 8 May 1929.[1][2]
