Zachary Quinto, who took on the role of Spock for the “Star Trek” revival films, inadvertently started some rumors that he’s done with the franchise after the next film comes out, and took to Twitter recently to clear them up…sort of.

The 35-year old–who can also be seen on this season of “American Horror Story”–said in an interview that he’s thinking of moving in a different direction when “Star Trek: Into Darkness” is finished, which fans took to mean he doesn’t want to get pigeonholed as the iconic character for the rest of his career.

“It’s like an era of association with certain roles—a specific part like Spock, or a kind of part, like Sylar (his character in Heroes)—is coming to an end,” Quinto said.

He later took to Twitter to put his fans at ease, although it may have only confused them even more.

Quinto is a big presence on Twitter, and was in the news recently for tweets he sent to Donald Trump regarding his offer to President Obama.
