Zachary John Quinto (born June 2, 1977) is an American actor and film producer. Quinto rose to prominence for his role as series antagonist Sylar in the science fiction drama Heroes from 2006 to 2010. He is also known for his portrayal of Spock in the 2009 reboot Star Trek and its 2013 sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness. He has also appeared in smaller roles on television series such as So NoTORIous, American Horror Story and 24.
The interesting thing about my character 'Sylar' is that my strengths as an actor seemed to go completely against the shape of a character in the shadows. I stepped into this character and then realized how much there was to play with.
