The actress revealed that Jeff Rawle, who played evil Silas, would return to the role if the show's producers asked him back.
Hassan's character Lynsey Nolan found herself embroiled in a dangerous game of cat and mouse with Silas last year as she was the only person who saw his true colours.
Reflecting on the plot, Hassan told OK Extra: "That's the sort of storyline you want to get, because it's so dramatic. One minute you're in tears and the next minute you're screaming at someone. I'd like to see more of that side of Lynsey. She's the girl next door but we saw a much stronger and determined side to her.
"I saw Jeff, who played Silas, at the Soap Awards and he said he'd come back if he was asked, so I'm hoping there will be a prison break storyline in the future!"
The 30-year-old added that her current Hollyoaks contract runs until August, but her filming schedule has been less hectic since the Silas plot reached its conclusion.
She said: "During the Silas storyline, I found it hard to do anything but go home and sleep because you're absolutely zonked doing that sort of thing. At the moment I'm not on set as much so I have my evenings to myself just like any other job. I went home for a week recently and also went on holiday with my friends."
This week's Hollyoaks episodes see the villagers forced to revisit their memories of Silas when he hits the headlines once again.
