Terry Rawlings is a four-time BAFTA-nominated and an Oscar-nominated film and sound editor. He is the editor of Alien, Blade Runner and Chariots of Fire. He began in the film industry in the early sixties as a sound editor. Years later, as an editor, he worked on the popular animation Watership Down, before going on to play a major role in Ridley Scott’s horrific science fiction Alien as its editor. Terry’s work very much shaped Alien as one of the scariest and one of the most suspenseful films of the seventies. He also closely collaborated with Scott on another science fiction classic, Blade Runner, certainly one of the most popular of its genre. His work on Chariots of Fire, one of the most acclaimed British films of all time, gained him an Oscar and a BAFTA nomination.

Terry’s other credits as an editor include Barbra Streisand’s Yentl; Legend, also for Ridley Scott; Pierce Brosnan’s Bond debut, GoldenEye; Alien 3; The Saint; Entrapment and The Phantom of the Opera. As a sound or dubbing editor, he worked on The Great Gatsby, Ken Russell’s classic Women in Love, Isadora, The Devils and Ridley Scott’s debut film, The Duellists.
