More about Harry Gregson-Williams:
Harry Gregson-Williams is one of Hollywood’s most sought after composers, working on a variety of high-profile projects, both animated and live-action.
On the live-action side, he most recently composed the scores for Seraphim Falls, Déjà Vu, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, directed by Andrew Adamson (for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe and Grammy), Kingdom of Heaven, directed by Ridley Scott, Domino and Man on Fire, both directed by Tony Scott, and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, starring Renée Zellweger. Gregson-Williams’ credits also include Veronica Guerin, Phone Booth, Spy Game, Enemy of the State, The Match, The Borrowers, The Replacement Killers, Deceiver, Smilla’s Sense of Snow, The Rundown, and Return to Sender.
Gregson-Williams also composed the music for the blockbuster film Shrek 2 and previously won an Annie Award for the score to the original Shrek. Other animated films include Team America: World Police, Chicken Run, Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas, and Antz.
Born in England to a musical family, Gregson-Williams earned a scholarship from the music school of St. John’s College in Cambridge at the age of seven. By age 13, he had been a soloist on over a dozen records, and then earned a coveted spot at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. He started his film career as an orchestrator and arranger for composer Stanley Myers, and went on to compose his first scores for the veteran English director, Nicolas Roeg.
Gregson-Williams’ initiation in to Hollywood film scoring was then facilitated by his collaboration and friendship with Oscar®-winning composer Hans Zimmer. This resulted in Gregson-Williams providing additional music for such films as The Rock, Broken Arrow, The Fan, Muppet Treasure Island, Armageddon, As Good as it Gets, and The Prince of Egypt.
Upcoming projects for Gregson-Williams include the highly anticipated Shrek the Third.
