Hollyoaks actress Karen Hassan has revealed that Silas is to set his sights on bubbly Belfast lass Cheryl Brady (Bronagh Waugh) as the dark storyline continues. The shock move will come as Silas (Jeff Rawle) tries to get back at Lynsey who he attacked earlier this month.
The Irish actress who plays Cheryl's best friend Lynsey revealed all following the dramatic scenes which saw the nurse attacked by murderer Silas as he broke into her flat. However, Lynsey soon realised who was responsible and began to tell everyone, with only a few villagers believing her.
In an exclusive interview with soap mag All About Soap, the actress revealed that Silas sets Cheryl in her sights in an effort to get one over on Lynsey by swapping the diet pills Lynsey ordered for his pills following his heart attack.
Speaking to the mag, she said: ''Lynsey buys the pills for Cheryl off the internet, which is completely innocent. But Silas spots Lynsey giving the pills to Cheryl and sees an opportunity to get his own back. His evil instincts kick in once again and he slyly swaps Cheryl's diet pills for his own medication.''
''Poor Cheryl takes the wrong pills and ends up collapsing in Chez Chez. Lynsey and Rhys find her slumped unconscious in the club. It's a terrifying moment for Lynsey, who's overcome with guilt for putting her best friend in hospital.'' revealed the actress.
As she spoke of the events following the dramatic collapse, Hassan continued: ''The doctors tell her that a high level of sedative has been found in Cheryl's blood, but Lynsey is completely flummoxed by how it could have got there. It doesn't cross her mind at this stage that Silas would have wanted to hurt Cheryl. However, I think the penny will eventually drop for her.''
The scenes will air next month as Silas' dark tale continues and with confirmation that the storyline will run all year, there's many more twists and turns in the Silas saga.
