According to DNN, Hoppe, who died in a family circle, was among the most prominent and international actors of the former German Democratic Republic. He was born in December 1930. Since the late 1970s he has worked at Theatr Dresden and has also performed in a number of film and television films.
The Czech audience is mainly known as the King's representative of the fairytale by Václav Vorlíček Three Nuts for Popelka, which began in the 1970s in the Czechoslovakia-East German co-production. As well as Hoppe, other German actors have played a significant role in a movie that has been inherently connected to Christmas in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany and even Norway. The Queen was represented by Karin Lesch and Mother Carola Braunbock, a native of Všerub near Pilsen.
Hoppe screamed in the film by the Hungarian director István Szabó Mefisto, who won the Academy Award for the Best Foreign Language Film in 1982. His role was the Prime Minister's role as the Nazi politician Hermann Göring.
