George Fenton is a famous Actor, who was born on October 19, 1950 in United Kingdom. George Fenton was born in 1949 in Bromley, Kent, one of five siblings. His father was a mechanical engineer, and his mother had been a dancer and dance teacher before becoming a nurse during the war. Both his parents were musical – his mother played the piano and his father the drums – but weren’t professional musicians. However, his great grandfather on his father’s side was a conductor, and as a child had been a chorister and had even sung at the funeral of the first Duke of Wellington. George sang in church choirs as a boy, but it was the electric guitar – a Rosetti Lucky 7 – that first won his heart at the age of 7. Fenton attended St Edward’s School in Oxford where “he learnt his music” from Peter Whitehouse. He has no further formal training in music. Fenton’s involvement with St Edward’s continued as an adult and he has been a governor of the school since 1998. According to Astrologers, George Fenton’s zodiac sign is Capricorn.

Together with Michael Feast and David Dundas he co-wrote the music for Private Road (1971), a film he and Feast also starred in.

By the late 1970s Fenton was working regularly in television, becoming a popular choice of composer for dozens of television productions. These included Shoestring, a BBC crime drama which ran for 21 episodes in 1979–80, and Bergerac, which ran for a decade from 1981 to 1991, and for which he won a BAFTA in 1982.

In 1974, Fenton received his first major commission, as composer and musical director for Peter Gill’s theatre production of Twelfth Night by the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon.

He had some success as an actor in the early 1970s appearing in the film Private Road, in Alan Bennett’s first television play A Day Out directed by Stephen Frears, and in the soap opera Emmerdale Farm. In 1969, Fenton tried his hand as a recording artist with a cover of The Beatles song “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” and recorded piano for the folk group The Peelers on their Polydor LP “Banished Misfortune”. In 1973 he dabbled in band management helping to get the folk-rock band Hunter Muskett a recording contract with Bradley’s Records. While working as an actor Fenton was frequently asked by directors to play an instrument and he decided on a career switch to composing music.

He composed the music for all six of the LWT television plays by Alan Bennett, which were broadcast during 1978 and 1979 and are collectively known as Six Plays by Alan Bennett.

By the mid-1980s Fenton was composing for big budget TV series including the multi BAFTA winning The Jewel in the Crown (1984) and The Monocled Mutineer (1986).

Since the mid 1980s Fenton’s theatre work has become sporadic, just 7 productions since 1987, as opposed to over 100 television and film scores. From time to time he still composes for the theatre, often when working with long-term collaborators such as Richard Eyre (The Judas Kiss, 1998 and Last Cigarette, 2009), and Nicholas Hytner (Untold Stories, 2013, based on Alan Bennett’s autobiographical work of the same name). His most unusual theatre work occurred in 1992 when he wrote the music for Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, a dinner theater show at Disneyland Paris which The New York Times described as a “fake-rodeo-cum-dinner-theater” and the “indisputable highlight in the live performance category”.

He continued to work with the prestigious Royal Shakespeare Company composing for 4 of their productions between 1981 and 1985, working again with Adrian Noble on Anthony and Cleopatra in 1982, and most recently with Othello in 1999 directed by Michael Attenborough.

His film scoring as a professional composer began in 1982 with Richard Attenborough’s biopic Gandhi for which he was nominated—with his collaborator, Ravi Shankar—for the Academy Award for Original Music Score. Fenton’s career as a composer of film scores owes a debt of gratitude to Attenborough’s asking him to compose for Gandhi. Fenton said of him in a 2014 interview: “He always made me feel incredibly secure with what he was doing. He loves music, and he’s very musical.” Fenton wrote another four film scores for Attenborough’s films; Cry Freedom (1987), Shadowlands (1993), In Love and War (1996), and Grey Owl (1999).
