Actor Zachary Quinto (Heroes, American Horror Story, Star Trek) has revealed he is gay in an interview with New York magazine.
Quinto casually dropped the detail while promoting his upcoming film Margin Call while referencing his recent eight-month stint in the stage production of Angels in America.
Quinto said that the Broadway role had made him realise how lucky he was to have been born before the AIDS crisis’ “decimation of an entire generation of amazingly talented and otherwise vital men” in the mid-’80s.
“And at the same time, 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,” he said.
The matter of fact remark comes less that a year after he shut down a conversation with that very same magazine after deeming some of the reporter’s questions too personal.
Quinto’s latest series, American Horror Story, begins on ELEVEN on November 1st.
