Zachary Quinto

Zachary John Quinto was born on June 2, 1977 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He is perhaps best known for his role as Spock in the current "Star Trek" movie franchise, as well as his TV roles as Sylar on "Heroes" and as Dr. Oliver Thredson on "American Horror Story".

Mr. Quinto was raised in Green Tree, Pennsylvania, where he attended Saints Simon and Jude Catholic School. He graduated from the Central Catholic High School in Pittsburgh in 1995 and Carnegie Mellon University's School of Drama in 1999.

Although primarily known for his work on screen, Mr. Quinto's stage career started off in California with roles in Samuel Beckett's Endgame at the Los Angeles Odyssey Theatres in 2003, in Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing at the Los Angeles Shakespeare Festival and in Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow at the Old Glove Theatre. He later gained great acclaim for his off-Broadway debut as Louis Ironson in the 2010 revival of Tony Kushner's Angels in America, receiving a Theatre World Award for his efforts in 2011. In 2013, he took on the role of Tom Wingfield in the American Repertory Theater's revival of Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie which led to a Broadway transfer and his Broadway debut later that same year and in February 2016, he returned to off-Broadway to star in MCC Theater's production of Smokefall at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.

On screen, Mr. Quinto had appeared in minor roles in various TV series, including "The Others," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Six Feet Under," and "Charmed," until his big break came on securing the recurring role of Adam Kaufman in Fox's hit series "24" in 2003, appearing in 23 episodes. His next big role would come in 2006 when he would take on the role of Sylar in NBC's "Heroes," appearing in 61 episodes through to 2010. His career was launched into superstardom after being awarded the role of Spock in the new "Star Trek" movie franchise reboot, with the first film being released in 2009, with sequels "Star Trek: Into Darkness" and "Star Trek: Beyond" released in 2013 and 2016, respectively. He also starred in the roles of Chad Warwick and Dr. Oliver Thredson in the FX series "American Horror Story," culminating in his first Emmy Award nomination in 2013. Other notable screen credits include "Snowden," "Hannibal," "The Slap," "Girls," "I Am Michael," "Margin Call," and "So Notorious".

Mr. Quinto returned to the Broadway stage to take on the role of Harold in the 50th Anniversary production of The Boys in the Band from April 30 through to August 11, 2018.
