FAN EXPO Denver Expands the Celebrity Line-Up
Live long and prosper, Denver! Zachary Quinto (‘Spock’, Star Trek) to beam in for FAN EXPO Denver: SPECIAL EDITION
When the fans come back together for FAN EXPO Denver: SPECIAL EDITION, October 29-31 at the Colorado Convention Center, they’ll be joined by stars from every corner of the fandom universe – and announcements are just getting started!
Today, organizers announced Zachary Quinto! Quinto is a star of stage and screen best known for his iconic portrayal of “Spock” in the current incarnation of Star Trek films: Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, and Star Trek Beyond – a role for which he was partly selected by the original “Spock”, Leonard Nimoy, before his passing in 2015.
Audiences were first introduced to Quinto in Heroes for NBC. He won an Emmy Award for AMC’s American Horror Story: Asylum and is known for film roles in Hotel Artemis, Snowden, Hitman: Agent 47 and more.
He’s also known for his work on stage for the Broadway productions of Angels in America, The Glass Menagerie, and The Boys in The Band (which was also adapted for film for Netflix).
