After graduating from high school, Hofmann moved to Berlin to get higher education. Despite the constant shootings and traveling, Louis found time for lectures and exams.
“I have many ambitions,” says Hofmann, and viewers do not dare to doubt it.
Hofmann got the first role in a foreign film in the same year. The actor played as a German prisoner of war in the Danish-German film Land of Mine. This time, Louis’s work did not remain unnoticed too: he received the Bodil Award for the Best Supporting Actor in the main film award in Denmark, and also won a special film award in his homeland.
It was my first work, where I needed to work out the character’s disposition very accurately before shooting. I always tried to make my characters as plausible as possible.
“But in general, ”Louis admits,“ I would like to become part of the world cinema and leave a mark in its history.”
