Carnegie-Mellon Helped Shape Quinto

Zachary Quinto found that even though he could go home again, home had changed.

As reported by The Tartan Online, Quinto never expected to return home as a celebrity. "I grew up in Pittsburgh," said Quinto. "It's always a pleasure to come back. I don't think I would have ever imagined that [I would be coming back as a celebrity,] no. But it's a great honor, and it's really exciting...Yeah, it's great to be back and I feel like it's a really exciting time and the university has changed so much and grown so much in the ten years that I've been gone."

Quinto's roles of Sylar and Spock have garnered him notice at Carnegie-Mellon, as he found out when walking on campus after Homecoming. "Someone was asking me when we were coming back from [Homecoming] and all these people were following us and taking pictures of us and she was like 'Is that normal for you?' and I was like 'No, that’s Carnegie-Mellon! These are my people, in more than one way.'"

His time at Carnegie-Mellon helped to shape Quinto and prepare him for the roles that he would play after graduation. "I feel like what CMU has given me was a foundation to be able to sort of digest anything that gets thrown at me," said Quinto, "and it just happens that these two jobs are firmly rooted in science-fiction...As an actor I feel really capable of many other things that I hope to explore and intend to explore as well. I feel like being here prepared me for anything that I end up doing. I wouldn't be where I was if it wasn't for Carnegie Mellon, that’s for sure."

Too true. Science fiction nuts are fairly rampant on campus.

I overheard the following exchange in a computer lab back in 2005:
Guy: Wow, the lab's rather empty this evening.
Girl: It's opening weekend for Serenity, remember?
Guy: Oh, right.
Lead Organizer for EVN: Firefly.
