Alexandre Desplat is a French film composer who scored both parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.[1][2]


Before Potter

Alexandre Desplat has been scoring films since the mid-1980s, but barely any of these films reached U.S. cinemas and the few that did ("The Advocate" and "The Luzhin Defense") went almost unnoticed. The English-language films that first gained him notice in Hollywood were "Girl with a Pearl Earring" and "Birth". 2006's "The Queen" was his first major Oscar contender. Desplat also scored "The Golden Compass" in 2007. While staying true to his roots in French cinema with projects such as the biopic Coco Before Chanel and the prison drama A Prophet, he has also scored three major American films -– "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", "Julie & Julia", and the second entry in the Twilight franchise, New Moon. His next work will be the penultimate entry in the Harry Potter saga.[1]
