Wil Wheaton on “Why it’s awesome to be a nerd”

In a panel at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo on April 27th, “Star Trek” and “Big Bang Theory” actor Wil Wheaton fielded a question from an audience member, who asked him to explain to her newborn daughter “why it’s awesome to be a nerd.”

@Sweet_Me_73: Dear Teen Girls, Go for the nerdy ones. Trust us. Sincerely, Grown Women Everywhere”
