Victoria Hopper (24 May 1909 – 22 January 2007) was a Canadian-born British stage and film actress and singer.[1]


Hopper was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and brought up in North East England.[2] She studied acting and singing at the Webber-Douglas School of Singing, and was talent spotted in a school production and cast in the title role in a West End play, Martine in 1933.[3] She was at the peak of her popularity during the 1930s.[3] She was married from August 1934 until 1939 to Basil Dean, a British stage and film writer, director and producer.[3] Dean reportedly grew interested in Hooper due to her resemblance to a former lover of his, actress Meggie Albanesi (died 1923).[4]

Dean promoted Hopper's career and cast her as the leading lady in several major films for Associated Talking Pictures in the mid-1930s. However, the films did badly at the box office and her career waned.[2] Two films she was scheduled to appear in, Grace Darling and Come Live with Me, never materialised.[5]
