I was a boy, growing up with two girls, and I got lost in this ocean of estrogen. I tried to find a way to be heard and noticed.

The actor chose his middle name as his stage name because an agent had said to him that a guy with a name Zach Pugh wouldn't likely achieve anything in Hollywood.

Zachary, while regretting an interesting role in the theatrical performance Young Frankenstein in New York, accepted this offer - Roger Bart replaced him.
