This 41-year-old Uxbridge resident is no stranger to the big screen, performing with the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jason Statham.
The 14-times UK taekwondo champion has welcomed youngsters hoping to follow in his footsteps in martial arts.
“Growing up in the 1970s I was inspired by Bruce Lee, there were no age restrictions for films in Croatia then, so I watched the films on release," he said.
“When I was 12 and moved to the UK I was being bullied and attacked on the streets.
“I took up martial arts as a way of defending myself and to prevent any further bullies - my passion was there instantly.
“It got to the point where I was promoting the art at live shows and I thought to myself, 'If I can inspire a class of students, through media, I can inspire many more people'."
Silvio decided to take up acting, taking part in his first film 15 years ago in Thailand.
His acting career went on from there, with his desire to enrol in drama school and being cast in well-known films such as Transporter 3 and Unleashed.
“One of the nicest people I've worked with is Keanu Reeves," he told getwestlondon.
“Most A-listers get bombarded with fans so tend to close themselves in, but Keanu was ever so kind and polite, hanging out with me and going for drinks and shaking my hand whenever we met on set.
“I was up on stage at an awards show once and I shook hands with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
“He couldn’t remember who I was. I said: 'We met yesterday' and he was a little embarrassed!”
Martial arts school
Silvio went on to explain that each and every experience has been different, taking away different things from each time he was on set.
“I am very pleased to have seen the world, it’s opened up a new horizon for me," he said.
“Two years ago I made 53 flights in one year!
"I still have my idols that I aspire to!”
The next film that Silvio will be starring in, Fighting Talk, will be his first lead role.
Silvio hasn’t just been in the Hollywood spotlight, as he recently took part in Italy’s Dancing with the Stars.
“I got to the final show and it was so much fun but in a sense, very challenging.
“It threw me out of my comfort zone and kept me on my toes, I’m far from a good dancer now though!”
The Hollywood action man has recently set up a martial arts school in Hillingdon for children who aspire to follow in his footsteps.
“Defeating my own inner demons in my life have been the biggest of all my achievements," he said.
“That self esteem that I got from learning martial arts can overcome those obstacles in life.
“I wanted to team up with people. Michael Jackson’s bodyguard for 10 years helped me set it up.”
Silvio runs the school with Matt Fiddes, a famous trainer who was the bodyguard of the King of Pop Michael Jackson.
The school, in Hayes, teaches children the award-winning curriculum of martial arts, helping to also improve other aspects of life such as school performance.
