Zachary Quinto: I want to stay authentic

GETTY_E_101711_ZacharyQuinto Speaking for Band Showbiz at the 25th annual Galway Film Fleadh in Ireland, Zachary Quinto said he is happy that popularity gave him a better control over his career but also that he won’t let it change him.

He said: ”I have made decisions that have always been organic, in regards to what I’ve done and how I do it now, although that wasn’t always the case because I didn’t always have the control or power to do that, because I was just pounding the pavement trying to get a job. ‘Heroes’ started to change that for me and ‘Star Trek’ obviously furthered that, and then I started my production company, which I think gave me, immediately, a totally different reserve and well of creativity. In my personal life, I am unapologetically who I am, but I feel like I also have a responsibility, and maybe other people don’t feel this way, but I have a responsibility to be authentic.”

I don’t want to live a life that isn’t true, and ultimately I had to make decisions along to way to come out, that required a lot of thought and a lot of time,” he said.
