Kit Harington has scored himself a new role, as he’s signed up to reunite with his Seventh Son co-star Alicia Vikander in BBC Films Testament of Youth, according to THR.
The film is an adaptation of Vera Brittain’s 1933 autobiography, which follows her experiences in World War I. Brittain stopped stuffing as Oxford so that she could become a nurse. While she tended to the injured, the war claimed the lives of both her fiance and brother. After the conflict ended, she tried to get her life back on track, but found herself as part of a lost generation. She later returned to Oxford to become a feminist and a writer.
Alicia Vikander, who replaced Saoirse Ronan in the film late last year, is play Vera Brittain, with Kit Harington as her fiance. James Kent (The White Queen) is directing from a script by Juliette Towhidi (Calendar Girls).
