Life and career

He was born in Duisburg, West Germany, to a Persian father and German mother. After graduating summa cum laude from Berklee College of Music in 1998, Djawadi garnered the attention of Hans Zimmer, who recruited him to Remote Control Productions. Djawadi moved to Los Angeles and worked as an assistant to Klaus Badelt.

He then went out on his own with Blade: Trinity, collaborating with The RZA for director David Goyer. This was the beginning of his relationship with Goyer for both film and television. Djawadi wrote the score for Goyer''s horror thriller The Unborn, which was produced by Michael Bay. Further collaboration with Goyer was the hit television show FlashForward, earning him his second Emmy nomination. Djawadi also composed the Emmy-nominated main title theme for Prison Break and the title theme for the related show Breakout Kings. Djawadi''s ethereal score for the film Mr. Brooks earned him a World Soundtrack Awards “Discovery of the Year” nomination. His other scores include Deception, starring Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor, Robert Towne''s Ask the Dust, and Iron Man

Djawadi scored the first Sony Animation project, Open Season, followed by the sequel Open Season 2. Additional animation scores include The Chubbchubbs Save Xmas. Djawadi''s work in these films attracted the filmmakers of the Belgium-based NWave, who created one of the first animated movies in 3D, Fly Me to the Moon. Djawadi completed Warner Brothers'' Clash of the Titans in 2010. Djawadi also scored the soundtrack for the 2010 video game Medal of Honor and currently the HBO fantasy drama Game of Thrones and the CBS crime drama Person of Interest. He will also score the FX''s vampire drama The Strain. The show is created by Pacific Rim director Guillermo Del Toro.
