Hollyoaks: Gloved Hand Killer Lindsey exits – actress Sophie Austin to leave the cast

Is Lindsey about to meet her match in the form of Silas?


Serial killer Lindsey Roscoe is on her way out of Hollyoaks, with actress Sophie Austin having already filmed her final scenes for the Channel 4 soap.


Although soap bosses are remaining tight lipped as to the exact nature of her exit, it seems that Lindsey’s departure will be tied to the recent reappearance of that other notorious murderer Silas Blissett (Jeff Rawle).

The character of Lindsey was revealed to be the Gloved Hand Killer in dramatic scenes broadcast last October as apart of Hollyoaks’s 20th anniversary, but she now looks set to be stopped in her tracks.

“When I thought Lindsey couldn’t possibly meet her match along comes Silas Blissett,” Sophie Austin told the Daily Star on Sunday. “The scenes I’ve been shooting with Jeff are some of the most tense I’ve ever filmed. All I will say is I’ve been filming a lot with Jen Metcalfe, who plays Mercedes, and she has unfinished business with Silas.”

But is this going to be it for Lindsey’s killing spree? “Whether it’s the end of the road for Lindsey, you’ll all have to wait and see. It’s very exciting and comes to a climax over the next few months.”
