Following the Vienna Dictate when Northern Transylvania fell under Hungarian domination, the Hossu family moves out from Cluj. On August 23, 1945, the family of diplomat Hossu, including their child, Emil, aged 4, is deported to a German camp where they will live for 15 months. Their properties are confiscated. In 1948, because he had been a diplomat during Ion Antonescu’s rule, Emil’s father is sent to the Black Sea-Danube Canal for forced labour. He comes back after 6 months and dies of cancer in 1958. Emil’s application for the admission to the Theatre and Film Academy is twice rejected, because of his family’s history . He succeeds the third time. He graduates the “I. L. Caragiale” Academy for Theatre and Film in 1965. His first roles are in plays aired on radio. He will join the team of the “C. Nottara Theatre” in Bucharest where, eventually, he has a heart attack and dies on stage during a general rehearsal, before the premiere. He was a believer of the Romanian church united with Rome and a member of the Former Political Detainees Association.
