Filming Assignment in March

The KWVR is to host another major film production, ’The Testament of Youth’, from the same production company that made the Harry Potter films, and more recently ’Gravity’.

The film is inspired by the life of Vera Brittain, an English writer who lived through World War I and went on to capture the experience in her best-selling memoir. The film will star Alicia Vikander as Brittain and Kit Harington will play her soldier fiancé; James Kent (of The White Queen fame) will direct. Filming is provisionally scheduled to take place at Keighley station in late March using vintage carriages from the Vintage Carriages Trust and Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Trust.
