ZACHARY QUINTO grew up in Pittsburgh. He began performing and studying acting 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, I am Montana (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, and went on to emerge as a breakout star of the NBC hit ensemble series Heroes, as the superpowered psychopathic serial killer, Sylar.

Most recently, Quinto appeared to overwhelming critical acclaim as Spock in the highly anticipated and enormously successful eleventh feature film installment of the Star Trek franchise, directed by JJ Abrams.

In 2008, Quinto founded Before the Door Pictures, with long-time friends and collaborators Neal Dodson and Corey Moosa. The company is actively developing projects across all media platforms, and in addition to no fewer than six feature films and three television series in various stages of development, they will publish their first comic book: Lucid, with Archaia Comics in August. The movie will be released in the October 2011.
