Silas Blissett is a fictional character and recurring antagonist of the British soap opera Hollyoaks. He debuted on 23rd December 2010 as a minor antagonist before becoming the show's primary antagonist in 2011, subsuqent to which he became a major antagonist in 2012 and 2016 along with 2020-2021 before becoming the unseen overarching antagonist in 2022.

In light of his villainous impact on the show, Silas Blissett was depicted to be Hollyoaks' very first serial killer even before he made his first on-screen appearence as per-released via media. Since then Silas has been hailed as one of the greatest villains in not just the show itself, but among all iconic villains in British Soap Opera in general.

The character is portrayed by Jeff Rawle.


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.
