Rafael Hugo Fernández Silva (born May 10, 1977) is a Spanish actor.

Early life[edit]

Silva was born in San Blas, Madrid, Spain. He began working as an electrician but, with his mother's encouragement, soon decided to try to be an actor. He began training in the RESAD (Real Escuela Superior de Arte Dramatico, Spain's oldest school of theater), while continuing with his vocal and guitar studies. He also joined a band called INORDEM.


In the late 90's he had the opportunity to participate in the Spanish television program "Crónicas Marcianas", helping him obtain some recognition. He was then given a leading role hit television series "Al Salir de Clase," based on the lives of Spanish high school students. In 2005, after having played a role in the unsuccessful "Paco y Veva", Hugo Silva was cast as Lucas Fernandez in on “Los Hombres de Paco”, a show that averages nearly 4 million viewers per episode.[1] In 2007 played the protagonist Mateo of critically acclaimed "El Hombre de Arena".
