John Standing

John Standing: 
A baronet in real life, he has made quite a career from playing patrician roles, and the occasional butler, in television and film over the years. A lot of cult TV boxes are ticked, including 'The Avengers', 'The Saint', 'Danger Man' and 'Space: 1999', and movies good and bad, from 'The Elephant Man' and 'V For Vendetta' to 'The Au Pair Girls' and 'Torture Garden'...

In 'The Au Pair Girls' (1972)
A less typical role, as a bubble-wrapped, eye-shadowed alien
in the 'Space:1999' episode 'The Mark of Archanon'
The opening credits to 'The Other 'Arf', in which he starred
as a posh Tory MP entranced by cockney model Lorraine Chase

  1. Also appears as a corpse in Game of Thrones as the named character Jon Arryn. He has no lines but Arryn's death sets off major developments in the story with huge consequences for other characters.
