Harry Gregson-Williams

One of the most successful film composers of the modern era, Harry Gregson-Williams' credits include the music for high profile movies such as 'Shrek' (2002), 'Phone Booth' (2002), 'Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason' (2004), 'Kingdom of Heaven' (2005) and 'The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian' (2009). He has won numerous awards for his soundtrack work, which began in the early 1990s, proving to be prolific across three decades. Born in Sussex, England, he seemed destined for great things from an early age after winning a music scholarship to St Johns College at Cambridge University at just seven years old. He was a child chorister and later studied music at Stowe School and began his career as a teacher at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London. His big break came when he worked with the Academy Award-winning film composer Hans Zimmer, who took Gregson-Williams under his wing, collaborating with him on scores to movies such as 'The Whole Wide World' (1996), 'The Rock' (1996), 'Smilla's Sense of Snow' (1997) and 'The Borrowers' (1997). He also collaborated with Trevor Rabin on 'Chicken Run' (2000) and 'Shrek' (2002) and began to specialise in music for childrens films (notably 'The Tigger Movie' (2000) and 'Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas' (2003)). During the 2000s his credits included music for 'Man On Fire' (2004) and 'Déjà Vu' (2006) while he also created memorable soundtracks to video games, such as the 'Metal Gear Solid' series and 'Call of Duty'. Later credits include 'The Martian' (2015), 'Live By Night' (2016) and 'The Zookeeper's Wife' (2017), and he was also working on the latest 'Batman' movie.
