Anthony Lledo (born 11 January 1972) is a Danish composer.

Anthony Lledo made his feature film debut with the score for the Swedish film Frostbite. His dark thematic orchestral score received widely critically acclaim and won the Best Score Award at the Screamfest Horror Film Festival in Hollywood, Los Angeles[1]. Music from Frostbite was later performed in concert by the Malmö Symphony Orchestra.

He has scored all the movies of Swedish director Anders Banke.

In 2008, Anthony Lledo moved to Los Angeles upon being invited by film composer Harry Gregson-Williams, and did additional music and arrangements for major films, including X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, DreamWorks' Shrek Forever After, Ben Affleck's The Town, Cowboys & Aliens, and the Tony Scott films The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 and Unstoppable.

Lledo has scored the four-time Emmy Award winning Civil War film Gettysburg (exec. produced by Ridley Scott and Tony Scott), the horror/thriller Darkroom starring Kaylee DeFer and Elisabeth Röhm, as well the animated fantasy TV-series Legends of Chima which received widely critical acclaim and was named one of the best scores for television in 2013 by several reviewers - winning Tracksounds Cue Award for Best Television Score.[2]

In 2018 Anthony Lledo and composer Mikkel Maltha composed the score for the feature film The Purity of Vengeance (Journal 64), the fourth installment of the Department Q film series directed by Christoffer Boe based on the successful books by Danish writer Jussi Adler-Olsen. The film topped the chart as the most watched film of 2018 in Denmark and broke record as the highest-ever grossing local film in Danish cinemas [3].
