Testament of Youth

16 Jan, 2015

Harington plays Roland Leighton, Brittain’s fiancé, in this historic drama directed by James Kent. He shares a dream of being a writer with his friends and Vera Brittian. Roland Leighton enlists as war is declared and falls in love with Vera Brittian as he writes her poems and letters.

I studied Testament Of Youth in school and knew a lot about the First World War. I was immediately interested in the script, especially the war poetry. I then met with James Kent and Rosie Alison to read for the part. And Juliette Towhidi did a brilliant job writing the script. She has created an extremely moving and dreamlike piece. Everyone around Vera, including Roland, seems to be a snippet in Vera’s life, almost part of her imagination.
