Actor Zachary Quinto, known for the villain character Sylar in “Heroes” and Spock in the 2009's "Star Trek", has publicly come out and shared his life as "a gay man"!
The 34-year-old actor reveals that his eight month stint in 'Angels in America' gave him the courage to come out.
In an interview with New York Magazine, Quinto said, "as a gay man, it made me feel like I — there's still so much work to be done. There's still so many things that need to be looked at and addressed."
Zachary also talked about the legalization of gay marriage and the shocking suicide of gay teen Jamey Rodemeyer.
"As a gay man I look at that and say there’s a hopelessness that surrounds it," he says, "but as a human being I look at it and say ‘Why? Where’s this disparity coming from, and why can’t we as a culture and society dig deeper to examine that?’ We’re terrified of facing ourselves.”
Meanwhile, Zachary has an upcoming film coming out titled "Margin Call".
