Harry Gregson-Williams, the prolific composer who all of director Tony Scott's feature films since Enemy of the State, remembered his frequent partner in an emotional tribute statement on Monday. Scott died of an apparent suicide on Sunday afternoon.
"I loved scoring movies for Tony Scott and I can honestly say that each and every one of those experiences has left an indelible mark on me," Gregson-Williams wrote. "From the sadness of Man on Fire to the kick in Spy Game to the lunacy of Domino, Tony always believed so whole heartedly and passionately in his work that it was nothing short of a privilege to be a part of his team, time and time again.
"He was a truly unforgettable & formidable artist to work with," he continued. "Fearless yet thoughtful, strong as an ox yet amazingly sensitive, always utterly focused on his vision, yet never lacking in humor and compassion and never losing sight of his and our great fortune to be working on movies for a living. He was a one of a kind and will be sorely missed. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Donna, and to his boys and the rest of the Scott family."
Gregson-Williams was the composer on: Spy Game, Beat the Devil, Man on Fire, Domino, Deja Vu, The Taking of Pelham 123, and Unstoppable. He joins the many Hollywood figures that reacted with great sadness to the news of Scott's death.
