He began his career as a stuntman in California where his extensive Equestrian skills landed him stunt roles alongside actors like Charlize Theron, Jeff Daniels, Teri Hatcher, James Spader, Kiefer Sutherland, Darryl Hannah, Willem Dafoe, Sam Trammell, Toby McGuire and many others. Eventually, the acting bug bit him and he soon garnered recognition for his charismatic presence and acting talent. Silvio achieved critical acclaim on award-winning productions big and small and was selected several times to star alongside Hollywood’s brightest.
In addition he appeared opposite such stars as Val Kilmer, Ving Rhames, Luke Goss and alongside hot young stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort in the Box Office Hit, The Fault In Our Stars which grossed $300 Million Dollars worldwide. Silvio has a broad range and loves physical roles, his military background and martial arts skills enable him to do virtually all of his own stunts. There are several exciting films scheduled to be released later this year that show him in the lead, most noteworthy the suspense thriller Ghost Beyond by director Michael Givens.
More recently he has taken up the mantle of director and put his knowledge of WWII history to the test in the film project, The Last Mission which Silvio wrote, directed and also stars in.
