Louis Hofmann biographyLouis Hofmann is a German actor known for his roles in the films Tom Sawyer (2011), Red Sparrow (2018), and the series Dark (2017).
Childhood. First rolesLouis Hofmann was born on June 3, 1997, in the German town of Bensberg, not far from Cologne. At the age of 9, he first got on the television. His mother’s friend worked on one of the German TV channels and helped her get Louis the evening Servicezeit TV show, in which once a month the kid expressed his opinion of theme amusement parks or types of children’s leisure activities under the heading “Die Ausflieger”.
This lasted for about two years, and by the age of 11, Louis had a desire to become a real actor. On television, he often met with movie stars, talked with them, and he was delighted with the invariably wide smile on their faces. In the end, the boy persuaded his mother to take him to an acting agency.
“I have many ambitions,” says Hofmann, and viewers do not dare to doubt it.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.
Acting careerThe role of Wolfgang in Marc Brummund’s film Sanctuary (2015) is considered by Louis as his first serious, “adult” role, which brought Louis the Bavarian Film Awards prize: the teenager was recognized as the Best Newcomer Actor of the year.
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.Hofmann got the first role in a foreign film in the same year. The actor played 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.
Louis’s career went up rapidly: soon he got an important role in the drama series You are Wanted with Matthias Schweighofer, and also appeared in the comedy Lommbock with Moritz Bleibtreu, one of the most popular German actors.
In the biographical picture The White Crow (2018) directed by Ralph Fiennes, which reveals the life story of the ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev in the West, Louis played as Teja Kremke, an 18-year-old dancer from East Berlin who was brought together with the legendary artist by fate. It is believed that it was Kremke who became Nureyev’s first lover and persuaded him to move to Europe.
Louis Hofmann personal lifeVery little is known about the personal life of the young actor. His Instagram account mainly contains only working moments: shots from shootings and official events. If the young actor is in a relationship, then he still manages to hide it well.
In March 2020, information about Luis's girlfriend appeared in the media. It is reported that his beloved was Stella Markert, a model and aspiring producer, whom he met back in 2017.
Louis Hofmann nowThe second season of the series Dark was released on June 21, 2019. Louis’s character got much more screen time and became one of the key characters in unraveling this complicated and tragic time travel story.
“But in general, ”Louis admits,“ I would like to become part of the world cinema and leave a mark in its history.”
