The nerdy kid is a classic character type featured in film and television through the years, and never before have nerds been so entertaining. Remember annoying Luke Brower on Growing Pains? Creepy little Wednesday Addams on The Addams Family? How about kid genius Doogie Howser or dorky Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter? We all know of at least one or two child stars who fell firmly on the awkward or nerdy side of the spectrum, who endeared themselves to viewers as we watched them grow up onscreen.
