Emil Benedict Zilliacus (January 11, 1921 – January 28, 2013) was a Swedish-speaking Finnish journalist, author, scriptwriter and translator.[1]

Zilliacus was born in Helsinki, Finland. He wrote screenplays for many movies, including Etulinjan edessä (Beyond the Front Line), which he wrote together with Stefan Forss.

In the 1950s and 1960s, he wrote a revue for the Swedish theater Lilla Teatern in Helsinki every other year, or sometimes more often; the show became very popular.
