Zachary Quinto reacts to ‘Heroes’ axing
Zachary Quinto has reflected upon NBC’s recent cancellation of Heroes.
The 32-year-old actor, who played Sylar in the sci-fi series, thanked the show’s fans and reserved special praise for creator Tim Kring.
He wrote on his blog: “[On Friday] NBC announced that Heroes is officially cancelled. As much as we have been aware of this possibility for a few weeks – it remains surreal to consider that the decision has been made.
“I want to extend myself in a huge swell of gratitude to all of the fans, for investing in the stories we told, for engaging in the characters we created, and for standing by us through all the ups and downs of what was at times a rocky road.
Quinto continued: “I will certainly miss them most of all, the gift of working alongside such talented and inspiring people is something I will carry with me everywhere I go from here.
“Tim Kring and the original creative team and writing staff took a risk on me to play Gabriel Gray when there was no reason to risk – besides their belief in me.
He added: “They gave voice to a character that has challenged me and rewarded me beyond my wildest imagination. I will never forget that. It is humbling and deeply moving. So I thank them.”
