From Wikipedia Victoria Hopper (24 May 1909 – 22 January 2007) was a Canadian-born British stage and film actress and singer. Hopper was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and brought up in Dunston, Gateshead, County Durham in North East England. She was popular during the 1930s. She was married from August 1934 until 1939 to Basil Dean, a British stage and film writer, director and producer. Dean grew interested in her because of her resemblance to a former lover, actress Meggie Albanesi, who had died in 1923. 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 began to wane. Two films she was scheduled to appear in, Grace Darling and Come Live with Me, never materialised.
