Biography CLOSE THE FULL 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- )....
