Carnegie Mellon University was the source of his confidence, says Zachary Quinto, and his experiences there helped him in many ways.

Speaking from the house of his best friend, a fellow Carnegie Mellon graduate, as reported on the Carnegie Mellon website, Quinto elaborated. "There are so many wonderful teachers there," he said. "Carnegie Mellon gave me the confidence to shape the role of Sylar."

"Carnegie Mellon prepared me for all this," he explained. "I'm talking to you right now because my experience probably appears easy, but I guarantee you the path from when I left Carnegie Mellon to today was marked with great challenge, adversity and pain."

Quinto is still in touch with his university friends. "They're my best friends and will be my best friends for the rest of my life," he said. "It's unfathomable how we stick together."

Quinto, born in Green Tree (a suburb of Pittsburgh), Pennsylvania, is a graduate of Central Catholic High School (1995) and Carnegie Mellon University (1999) where he attended the School of Drama.
