Alicia Vikander: Vera Brittain's Letters 'Were My True Treasure'

Alicia Vikander steps out with her brilliant smile for the premiere of her new film, Testament of Youth, held at Empire Leicester Square on Monday night (January 5) in London, England.

The 26-year-old actress stars as Vera Brittain in the film, based on the real person’s memoir during the war.

“The first thing I did was to read the memoir, but my own preparation was the letters and the correspondence between Vera Brittain and her fiancé, and brother, and friends during the war,” Alicia explained on the red carpet of preparing for the movie.

She added, “Also the diary notes and meeting Shirley Williams – who invited me to share her own memories and experiences of her mother. The letters are the words from that time, from that young woman whilst the memoir was written by a woman in her mid-30s looking back at her own experiences. Those letters were my true treasure.”
