Despite the fact that Silbermann identifies as straight, when asked if he was worried about playing gay in his first high-profile gig, Silbermann responded: "I didn't hesitate for a second."[7] In fact, his excitement about playing Noah was only heightened after his experience at the aforementioned GLAAD gala. "It was emotional. People are very excited about this," Silbermann says, "and it was great being at the awards and feeling that and realizing that this is more than a role".

Prior to joining the cast of As the World Turns, he appeared in a national television ad campaign for Gillette Fusion Power.[8] In his spare time, he enjoys working out and cooking.
