* TypeCasting: Typically cast as mentally unbalanced or at least morally dark {{Jerkass}} characters. His roles as Sasan and Spock, and his roles in ''Film/MarginCall'' and ''We'll Never Have Paris'' is actually him PlayingAgainstType.
** The typecasting goes so deep that he was listed under "killers" on the [[Characters/{{Hannibal}} character page]] for ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'' before his episode even aired. [[spoiler:It turns out he was innocent of any crime and completely harmless. For almost three seasons, it's been said that his character attacked his psychiatrist when it's been quite the opposite way around the whole time.]]

* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Is quite laid back and sweet in RealLife, but once he gets into character, prepare to be terrified.
** Creator/StephenTobolowsky talks about working on ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' during one of his podcasts, and despite only sharing a single deleted scene, describes him as 'the sweetest guy' in admiring tones. Take note, this was a scene in which Zach's character killed Stephen's, and Zach apologized numerous times. Stephen only mentions Creator/KristenBell as being just as nice.
* MrFanservice: As Sylar's popularity increased, the writers wrote in more thinly veiled {{Fanservice}} moments into his scenes. There's a reason he and Milo Ventimiglia, who plays Peter, have the most {{shirtless scene}}s in the show.
* PromotedFanboy: An avowed drama geek from the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama, he was extremely pleased to be cast as Louis in a production of ''Theatre/AngelsInAmerica'' as he was a fan of the material.
** Played with in that it wasn't until he was cast as the reboot Spock that he became a fan of Star Trek.

* DyeingForYourArt: In order to put on the prosthetic Spock eyebrows, he had to shave off his own. ChrisPine described it as a "forehead Brazilian wax."



* FanNickname: Often referred as ZQ or La Quinto. His CarpetOfVirility is known as The [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Batsignal]], and his most recognizable trait is known as the Sybrows. Characters he has played are known as Quintoplets.
** FanCommunityNickname: Zachary has a very dedicated and loving community known as Sylar's Army.
* FandomNod: When an interviewer asked him about the the [=SArmy=] (Sylar's Army), who raise money for charities that he supports, he replied that he'd heard of them and considered it pretty damn cool.
