An award-winning film, television, and video game composer whose credits include The Tudors, The Borgias, Pillars of the Earth, and Vikings, Trevor Morris was born in London, Ontario.
A student of the arts from a very young age, Morris' first foray into commissioned work was to compose a piece for his graduating class to perform in honor of the arrival of Pope John Paul II in Canada. He was 13 at the time and received 50 dollars. After graduating at the top of his class from Fanshawe College of Applied Arts and Technology, Morris moved to Toronto, where he honed his skills in both production and composition, eventually shifting his focus solely on the latter. Upon relocating to Los Angeles, California, he began working alongside James Newton Howard
and Hans Zimmer
, eventually securing a spot on Zimmer
's team, with whom he would amass a considerable amount of blockbuster screen credits. In 2007 he received an Emmy Award for his theme for the Showtime period television drama The Tudors. More Emmy nominations followed for his work on The Borgias and Pillars of the Earth. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
