Christopher Da Silva
Played By: Sean BeanRose's husband who is left behind when his wife and daughter run off to Silent Hill, and spends most of the film playing Sherlock trying to track down Sharon's origins and learns of her connection to Alessa Gileppsie.

Played By: Laurie HoldenA highway patrol cop from Brahams, Cybil pursues Rose and Sharon after realising they're heading to Silent Hill and ends up trapped in the foggy town with them, becoming Rose's Lancer. She sacrifices herself to the Cult to save Rose and is burnt to death.
Played By: Deborah Kara UngerAlessa's mother, Dahlia was convinced by Christabella to "purify" her daughter, leading to Alessa's burning. Dahlia is banished from the Cult after realising the error of her ways, now wandering Silent Hill as the only citizen to be unharmed by Alessa's monsters, and becomes quite frantic when Rose, Cybil and Sharon appear in town.
Officer Thomas Gucci
Played By: Kim CoatesA police officer who has a connection to Silent Hill, having rescued Alessa from the fire and is the only known citizen to escape Silent Hill before Alessa turned it into hell. He accompanies Christopher to Silent Hill to look for Rose and Sharon.
Played By: Tanya AllenA citizen of Silent Hill, Anna was born and raised on the Cult's lies and knows very little about the outside world or the town's own history, let alone the crimes the Cult performed on Alessa. Due to her upbringing, she possesses a very childlike demeanour. She hangs around with Rose and Cybil for a while, before being ripped apart by Pyramid Head outside the Cult's chapel.
Played By: Alice KrigeThe leader of the Cult of Silent Hill, Christabella is a monster to say the least, leading the crazy cult members to burn Alessa at the stake. Now twice as mad and manipulative, Christabella has fooled the condemned cult members that Alessa is a demon, and the only way to survive is to burn people at the stake. She and the rest of the Cult are the targets of Alessa's justified revenge and meet their well-deserved ends in the bloody climax of the film when Rose allows Alessa to enter the chapel and slice and dice Christabella and co. with barbed wire tentacles.
Played By: Jodelle Ferland (child) Lorry Ayers (adult)The Apocalypse Maiden and major Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds, Alessa was nine years old when the Cult accused her of being a witch or a demon and had her burnt at the stake. She survived thanks to the sacrifice being botched, and the arrival of her mother and Officer Gucci. Now a vengeance-seeking Little Miss Badass, Alessa has trapped the Cult members in a nightmarish version of the town and split herself into two different other forms: Dark Alessa, her evil side, and Sharon Da Silva, her good side. She lures her good side to Silent Hill to get her revenge.
Sharon Da Silva
Played By: Jodelle FerlandThe adoptive daughter of Rose and Christopher, Sharon is actually the good side of Alessa. Her strange dreams lead her and Rose to Silent Hill, Sharon disappearing and leading Rose on a wild goose chase around the town of shifting horrors. The Cult try to burn her at the stake, but Rose arrives and has Alessa kill all of them, but Dark Alessa bonds with Sharon, re-creating Alessa.
Played By: Jodelle FerlandThe dark side of Alessa, Dark Alessa is a Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl and a Creepy Child, and she knows it. She represents Alessa's anger and desires to have revenge on the Cult. She can manipulate the monsters in Silent Hill, and lures Rose around the town until she reaches Alessa's bedroom in the hospital. When Alessa's revenge finally comes, Dark Alessa relishes in the gore. She later bonds with Sharon to create a new Alessa.
Lisa GarlandAn innocent nurse who cared for Alessa after she was burnt. She took a look at Alessa's burnt body and was unintentionally punished by Alessa's wrath, now forced to bleed from her face constantly. Alessa has since come to regret punishing her.
Armless Man (Laying Figure)One of the several monsters in the film, the Armless Man (or Men) is a featureless humanoid thing with its arms wrapped into its ribcage, making it walk about like someone in a straitjacket. It attacks Rose and Cybil, shooting acid at them. It's based on the Lying Figure monster from Silent Hill 2.
Grey ChildrenAn army of wailing, burnt, deformed children that approach Rose during the first time the town shifts into the Otherworld. They may have been Alessa's schoolmates, or more likely, the representation of Alessa after she was burned (they reach out to Rose as if seeking comfort from her, as Alessa wanted her mother after she was burned).
NursesRose encounters an army of twenty odd undead nurses, wrapped in bandages and brandishing weapons. They respond to light and end up attacking each other when Rose sneaks her way through the group to Alessa's hospital room.
Colin the JanitorColin the Janitor was the caretaker of the school Alessa went to. It is implied that he rapes her. He pays dearly, his corpse being found by Rose, strung up in a toilet cubicle by barbed wire. It gets worse when his body comes to life and starts crawling across the floor towards Rose.
Pyramid HeadThe iconic pyramid-helmet wearing Ensemble Darkhorse, Pyramid Head is an executioner-like monster and the most threatening of the monsters seen in the film (the non-human monsters anyway). He appears twice, but he leaves quite an impression, killing poor Anna outside the chapel.
