Golding spent his early years in Terengganu, Malaysia. When he was 9, his family moved to Surrey, England. When he was 21, he moved back to Malaysia, in Kuala Lumpur, to pursue acting work. He became a host of travel shows.

Later that year, he starred opposite Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick in the thriller A Simple Favor (2018). Since his 2018 success, he has starred opposite Emilia Clarke in the romantic comedy Last Christmas (2019) and played a more villainous role in the comedy-thriller The Gentlemen (2019).
