You're right, I thought you were special. Like someone I used to know. But you're not even worthy of her name!

Silas Blissett (born 17th March 1956) is a villainous character from the British soap opera Hollyoaks and was designed to be a serial killer from the start, indeed even before his first on-screen appearance (as of 23 December 2010) he was revealed via media as a future killer (and thus antagonist) for the long-running series.

he appeared as a minor antagonist in 2010, the main antagonist in 2011, supporting antagonist in the 2012, 2016 and 2020-2021 series.


Silas, born 17 March 1948, is the son of Nancy Blissett. Silas became a journalist and married a woman named Joan. They had two children, Heidi and Wendy. Silas told his family that Joan was murdered by an intruder she disturbed, and that he'd found her body, but it was later revealed that Silas had discovered that Joan was having an affair with her neighbor and Silas killed her, making it look as though she'd been killed by a burglar. Silas faked a heart attack after killing Joan, although it was later treated as a false alarm by the local hospital. He moved to Hollyoaks, where he planned to rid the village of women of low virtue. Before his capture, he killed four women, the last victim being his daughter Heidi. This was an accident, and Silas showed true remorse.
