Looked up the spellings and this is what I found:
"In the phrase above, you should use trouper instead of trooper. A trouper is a person who is a member of a troupe (a group of performers, such as actors). A trooper is a soldier (a member of a group of troops), a police officer (such as a state trooper), or a person in a similar category of jobs.Oct 3, 2012"

yes, trouper sometimes refers to the 'show must go on come hell or high water' mentality of groups of performers (a troupe)
