Zachary Quinto: I'm a Gay Man

Originally posted 10/16/2011 09:20AM

Zachary Quinto's eight-month run in the recent New York stage revival of Angels in America was an eye-opening experience for him.

Since the project, the actor, 34 – who had an acclaimed role as Louis Ironson, a man who abandons his AIDS-stricken boyfriend – publicly discusses his much-questioned sexual orientation for the first time.

In a new interview in New York, Quinto calls his work in the off-Broadway play the "most challenging thing I've ever done as an actor, and the most rewarding."

"At the same time," he adds, "as a gay man, it made me feel like there's still so much work to be done, and there's still so many things that need to be looked at and addressed."

Spock on Spock: Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto Sound Off

Originally posted 05/08/2009 03:05PM

Leonard Nimoy originated the role of the ever-logical Mr. Spock, and Zachary Quinto of Heroes braves the bowl cut for the latest Star Trek film – and so does Nimoy, thanks to some sci-fi plot twists. PEOPLE was all ears as the two actors mind-melded about playing the famous Vulcan.

What was your first meeting like?
Nimoy: We met in the elevator. I said to him, 'Do you have any idea what you're getting into?'

Quinto: You did tell me the stories about the people who would call you in your hotel room when you'd get somewhere. You'd get all these messages from people that found out where you were staying.

Meet the Cast of the New Star Trek

A brand-new cast is beaming into the iconic roles of the crew of the starship Enterprise as the revamped Star Trek lands in theaters May 8. PEOPLE has your guide to the Starfleet's finest and their first forays into the enduring sci-fi phenomenon:

NAME: Chris Pine
CHARACTER: Capt. James T. Kirk
WHERE YOU'VE SEEN HIM BEFORE: 2004's The Princess Diaries 2; 2006's Smokin' Aces
NEXT UP: The indie drama Small Town Saturday Night.

"As an actor you search for great roles," says Pine, 28. "This one just happened to be named James Kirk." While figuring out ways to make the part his own, he also watched William Shatner in the original series looking for "things that I felt that I could use without hitting people over the head with a bad impersonation," Pine says. "He's got a very theatrical quality that just made me smile every time." He admits donning Kirk's familiar gold uniform "was a fun day ... [but] as for the part being mine, I think people will always and forever connect Mr. Shatner to that role."

New Star Trek Cast Beams into Paris

Originally posted 04/15/2009 12:30PM

In Paris since Sunday evening, the stars of director J.J. Abrams's upcoming Star Trek movie have been mixing pleasure with promotion.

For Heroes actor Zachary Quinto, who plays the young Mr. Spock, the stop in Paris – one of 11 around the world since the $210-million film's Sydney premiere April 7 – is a sentimental one.

"About two years ago, I auditioned for the role of Spock, and, afterwards, I gave myself a few days in Paris to celebrate my [June 2] birthday," said Quinto, 31. During that first trip to Paris, he leisurely strolled the city, ate in a few restaurants and went to a club, which he recalls as "one of the best anywhere," Le Baron on Avenue Marceau, which closes at 6 a.m.
