Zachary Quinto grew up in Pittsburgh. He began performing and studying there as a child, but what started as a hobby quickly evolved into a vocation and he eventually matriculated to Carnegie Mellon School of Drama and received a BFA in 1999.
Some of his memorable theatre experiences include: Side Man, Gross Indecency (City Theatre Company), Much Ado About Nothing, A Lonely Impulse of Delight (Vineyard Playhouse), The Bear (Tintreach Company – Galway, Ireland), Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow (Old Globe), Much Ado About Nothing (LA Shakespeare Festival), Pro Bono Publico, A Map of Doubt and Rescue, Laying On of Hands, Lonesome Hollow (Ojai Playwright’s Conference). Upon graduation from CMU, Quinto surprised even himself by foregoing a career in New York and moving to Los Angeles almost immediately.
Work began trickling in, and before long he had a resume of guest starring roles on such shows as: Touched By an Angel, CSI, Off Centre, Haunted, The Agency, Six Feet Under, Joan of Arcadia, and Crossing Jordan, to name a few. In 2004, he spent an entire season in the CTU, as computer analyst Adam Kaufman on FOX’s highly rated drama 24. His character went home at the end of the day, and apparently never came back to work. He spent a short time as Tori Spelling’s flamboyant best friend on the critically acclaimed but underrated half hour series so noTORIous, but Quinto is best known to date for his role as Sylar, the super powered psychopathic serial killer on the NBC smash hit series Heroes.
In May 2009, Quinto appeared as Spock in the blockbuster reboot of the Star Trek franchise, directed by JJ Abrams. He lives in Los Angeles, but travels to New York as frequently as possible.
