Born in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, England on July 23, 1912, Wilding became a commercial artist after leaving school. He gained employment in the art department of a film studio in London in 1933, and he was soon approached by producers to become a movie star-in-training due to his dashing good looks. After debuting at age 21 in "Bitter Sweet", Wilding worked steadily in British pictures for nearly three decades. Though never a star of the first rank, he had leading roles in numerous films, including a part in the classic "In Which We Serve". Wilding often co-starred with Anna Neagle.
Wilding moved to Hollywood and was featured in two of Alfred Hitchcock's lesser efforts, "Under Capricorn" and "Stage Fright".
Wilding's last movie role was a non-speaking cameo in Robert Bolt's "Lady Caroline Lamb", which co-starred Leighton.
