The phrase "Nerd Sex Symbols" usually refers to one of two things: Smart celebrities who get the pulse racing; or sci-fi characters and superheroes who inspire NSFW fan-fiction and beaucoup cosplay among nerds and nerdettes. (George Clooney is hot, but how many people do you see dressed up like him at Comic-Con? The Walking Dead's hillbilly hunk Daryl Dixon, on the other hand….) There are legendary characters from intergalactic sagas and fantasy epics that we all love, sure. But there are also actors who obsess over comics, astrophysicists with swagger, jocks who love gaming, and babes and hunks whose knowledge of Middle Earth, mathematic theory, and how a TARDIS works can put the average fanboy to shame. Being a geek isn't just cool these days. It's downright white-hot.
