Biography

Classically handsome yet surprisingly versatile, actor Zachary Quinto rose to prominence with intense portrayals in a pair of popular genre offerings. After honing his skills in theater productions, Quinto began his screen career on television with guest spots on popular shows like "CSI: Crime Scene Investigations" (CBS, 2000- ), "Six Feet Under" (HBO, 2001-05) and "24" (Fox, 2001-2010). He later exhibited his comedic chops as Tori Spelling's gay sidekick on the short-lived sitcom, "So NoTORIous" (VH1, 2006). Quinto's breakout role came when he emerged from the shadows as the mysterious serial killer Sylar on "Heroes" (NBC, 2006-2010) and quickly became a crucial component of the highly-rated sci-fi drama. Even as the mega-popularity of "Heroes" began to wane, the actor achieved even greater success with his spot-on portrayal of Mr. Spock in J.J. Abrams' feature film reboot of the classic sci-fi franchise "Star Trek" (2009). Coinciding with his public announcement that he was gay, Quinto produced and starred in the Wall Street drama "Margin Call" (2011), in addition to making a memorable recurring appearance as an angry apparition on the first season of "American Horror Story" (FX, 2011- ). Demonstrating ambition to work behind the camera as well as in front of it, Quinto was assured a lengthy career in both film and television in a multitude of capacities.

Bonus Trivia

.

"I wish I knew not to try so hard. Part of my experience has been realizing that the combination of authenticity and perseverance goes much further than trying to give people what you think they want. If I had known that, I would have saved myself some heartache." – Quinto in Playboy magazine, May 2009

.

In October 2011, Quinto revealed he was gay. On his personal Web blog, the actor wrote: "...living a gay life without publicly acknowledging it – is simply not enough to make any significant contribution to the immense work that lies ahead on the road to complete equality. Our society needs to recognize the unstoppable momentum toward unequivocal civil equality for every gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered citizen of this country...I believe in the power of intention to change the landscape of our society – and it is my intention to live an authentic life of compassion and integrity and action."
