My friend once sculpted me a bust of Admiral Ackbar from 'Star Wars.' He's my favourite character in the films after Han Solo. He's that goldfish-type alien in the white costume. 'It's a trap!' I'm a big geek. -Katie McGrath

I used to play chess when I was a kid and participate in national-level tournaments with the geekiest guys.

But it worked! -Jordana Spiro

I was a musical theatre geek in high school and college. -Toks Olagundoye

When I was little, people like Talking Heads were on the radio. There was something geeky yet groundbreaking about them. -Bat for Lashes

My wife is pretty geeky and will occasionally quote 'Anchorman' at me. -Adam McKay

Yes, I was a big math and computer geek, that's true. I was driven by the scholastic side of things. For me, it was all about what I could do with math and computers. -Brian Acton

I like to believe that science is becoming mainstream. It should have never been something that sort of geeky people do and no one else thinks about. Whether or not, it will always be what geeky people do. It should, as a minimum, be what everybody thinks about because science is all around us. -Neil deGrasse Tyson

Every day, I wake up and I say, 'Why… how… did I end up with 1.7 million Twitter followers?' It's freaky to me, every day, but that tells me that there's an appetite out there that had previously been underserved. There's an inner geek in us all, an inner bit of curiosity that people are discovering, and they like it. -Neil deGrasse Tyson

Technology is a nerdy field. That's why I called myself a 'geek.' It requires a lot of training and encouragement at a very young age. -Weili Dai

I grew up loving monsters. I'm just a total monster geek. When I was a kid, I had the Aurora monster models, and I would make them. I loved the Universal horror movies and the Hammer movies. I just had an affinity for them. -John Logan

When I think about dropping team sports and picking up surfing and also then geeking out radio control planes and gadgetry and all that stuff I love, that's what really now has led me in big part to GoPro. -Nick Woodman

My background is in tech. I studied computer science, and was working on TechTV, so the first thing I wanted to do was see my favorite motherboard stories hit the front page; you know, like, really geeky stuff. -Kevin Rose

Twitter's been interesting. I'm kind of a tech geek, but I've never been a Facebook or Twitter guy. Surprisingly, I've really enjoyed Twitter because I get to connect with fans. -Reid Scott

I still have my old Nintendo 64 that works. And I hook it up, and I still play the original 'Goldeneye.' I'm that geek. I have an 'NBA Jam' arcade machine in my office at 'SNL.' -Taran Killam

When I was little, I guess I was just an ordinary kid. But then things changed when I was in junior high. You know, kids that become geeks become one because of something. Like, they aren't good at sports, or girls don't like them. I, too, for some reason, got into things like science fiction and, well, especially science fiction as an escape. -Takashi Murakami

I was a slightly geeky kid. -Joe Mansueto

I love music, and I love drumlines. I like school bands a lot. There's nothing wrong with cheerleading, but I'd rather be a band geek. It's a little more interesting. -Jurnee Smollett-Bell

My older sister has all her degrees in theater, and I couldn't stand the theater geeks! -Diane Neal

I'm such a horror geek, comic geek and action figure geek. I'm inspired by so much – from Hunter S. Thompson and Quentin Tarantino to 'The Dark Knight' and 'Halloween'. Just show me something that doesn't suck, and I'm happy. -Corey Taylor

I'm a massive science fiction and fantasy geek. -Robert Kazinsky

I'm pretty much a documents reporter. I'm a public records geek. -Bill Dedman

I was scouted at the age of 10 by a Hollywood agent. I was a really shy, geeky-looking thing, and started in the industry by doing 'extra' work on films. -Austin Butler

Even though I knew my way around Facebook, Twitter terrified me. RT? OH? Hootsuite? Huh? My Twitter-savvy friends attempted to explain what a hashtag was, but, still mystified, I signed up for an online Twitter 101 class. Yes. I'm geeky like that. -Sarah Mlynowski

I'm just glad I've had these opportunities to be geeks in some really awesome movies. -Christopher Mintz-Plasse

My high school experience was kind of like 'Mean Girls.' It was very much like a bad B movie. 'This is where the jocks sit, and this is where the cheerleaders sit.' And I never really fit in. I guess I was sort of a theatre geek, but the activity that I was most invested in was speech and debate. -Andie MacDowell

I think we all feel geeky at times, don't we? Isn't that all a part of the wonderful tapestry of life? -Kate Bush

With superheroes and comics and fantasy and sci-fi being absolutely the popular currency in cinema, it's like people have said in endless magazines, it's the revenge of the geeks and all that. There's some truth in that. -Martin Freeman

The geeks shall inherit the earth – I've always said that. -Cindy Morgan

I've always been a bit of a space geek. I wrote an article years ago about the neutral buoyancy tank, which is this biblically sized pool where they train astronauts. And it was just the coolest thing. -Mary Roach

I read the Steve Jobs book, and that kind of changed everything. I've been, like, an Apple geek my whole life and have always seen him as a hero.

I've always been a DVD geek and, before that, a laser disc fanatic, too. -Peyton Reed

I watched westerns when I was a kid, like everybody else, but I wasn't a total nerd or geek about it. I kind of fell in love with westerns heavily when I started watching Sergio Leone's westerns. -Mads Mikkelsen

In 2012, the city of Austin erected an eight-foot-tall bronze statue of Willie Nelson in the heart of the business district.

By the time I was 10, I was doing plays for Phoenix theater. My first lead role was as the Stinky Cheese Man. I got a taste of the limelight, and I just couldn't stop. It was a way for me to be the artistic, geeky kid that I was, and not get beat up. -Alexandra Shipp

I sat at the popular table, but I always felt really geeky. -Mackenzie Davis

I grade my stocks. I'm what they call a quant, one of the geeks of the stock market. -Louis Navellier

The perception in Silicon Valley is that if you dress well, you couldn't possibly be smart, or you're in P.R. but couldn't possibly run a company.

When I first encountered the 'Sigma Force' novels – long before I became friends with Jim Rollins – a bookseller told me that these stories were about 'geeks with guns.' While not entirely accurate, that's pretty close to the mark, and that really speaks to me. -Jonathan Maberry

It used to be, on TV, you'd see only two types of Asians. You'd see the science geek who's using his mobile phone or something like that, or you'd see a very token Asian family – yuppie mother and father and two little Asian kids. It's the last barrier for Hollywood. -Kevin Kwan

I think what initially attracts many kids to trains are the 'cool' things: strength, size, agency, speed. But trains also operate within a world of systems, schedules, codes, and fine distinctions. Enter the geeks. What I personally love most about trains is that they are transporting, that they take us places – literally and otherwise. -Brian Floca

I didn't read much SF as a kid – I was a total Tolkien geek – but I started reading Samuel Delany and Angela Carter and Ursula LeGuin in high school, and I was definitely taken with the notion that here was a literature that could explore various notions of gender identity and how it affects the culture at large. -Elizabeth Hand

I feel like nowadays everybody I know has a smidge of geek in them. In other words, they have some odd niche or some obsessive tendencies. -Josh Zuckerman

I was the nerd. Because I was reading. I wasn't into sports. I was really into art. Very geekish about comics. Assumed gay. -Marlon James

Being a Muslim in America, I've noticed that there's a ton of crossover between the Muslim community and geekdom. -G. Willow Wilson

I grew up a geek. I added comedy to it midway through high school. -Jordan Klepper

His knowledge of house music is pretty deep, and his selection is just amazing. And I think it's a pleasure to listen to his music because it's so perfectly produced. -Jamie xx

'Star Trek' fans totally accepted my sexual orientation. There are a great number of LGBT people across 'Star Trek' fandom. The show always appealed to people that were different – the geeks and the nerds, and the people who felt they were not quite a part of society, sometimes because they may have been gay or lesbian. -George Takei

A lot of people don't believe I was a soldier. They look at my luscious hair and wacky bow-tie collection and immediately put me down as some kind of supernatural geek. -Rhys Darby

I would love to be an historian. I'm a bit of a history geek and love books and programmes on the subject. -Greg Rutherford

I'm a geek when it comes to my voice. I know if it hurts, something's wrong. You shouldn't feel it! It's very important to look after your voice. -Cynthia Erivo

I was crazy into performing when I was younger. I was obsessed with the craft of acting, and theatre, and stage. You know the term 'theatre geek?' I am the extreme theatre geek. -Vincent Rodriguez III

I dressed as the Riddler once, when I was little too heavy to do. I would wear tights. My brother was in a hair metal band, and he had Riddler tights made. My brother's a geek, but he was in a heavy metal band, so I'm a chubby fifteen-year-old, and I borrow his Riddler tights and wear them to school with the package. That wasn't a good idea. -Christopher McCulloch

Only a geek would say this, but my first true love was a game called 'Wizardry'; that was the game that hooked me forever. -Curt Schilling

I'm a bit of a geek, actually. So I always wanted my first film to be science fiction. -Duncan Jones

I'm a closet geek. -Matthew Vaughn

I'm a card-carrying nerd, a gamer, and sci-fi geek. -Marcus Sakey

My own personal geek culture years were when I was much younger. I collected comic books up until a certain age. I wanted to be a comic book artist when I was younger. -Greg Mottola

I was always really geeky about design and buildings. Always into architecture as a kid. -Aldis Hodge

Man, it's hard to beat having gotten to play Superman. But where do you go from there? Aren't careers supposed to culminate in a role like that?

I listen to a lot of jazz. I'm a big Sinatra geek. I love Chet Baker. -Eddie Marsan

But one source of rural prosperity is the adoption of radical new technologies – and a consequent surge in productivity. -Chrystia Freeland

'Game of Thrones,' people say that it's a fantasy series, but it's a hell of a lot more than that.

It's all those wonderful things that a fantastic drama is about. -Liam Cunningham

Most people would put me firmly in the nerd/geek category. It wouldn't be a change from where I've been put my whole life, but my place now has standing. Nerds are inexorably cool again. -Kyle Hill

I am a massive film geek, and I love movies. -James Arthur

I was lucky enough to have parents with a huge film library. My mum is a huge Bollywood film geek. When we were kids, we would watch Indian films with her as well as Chinese and Japanese films. My father was more into the classics, American films, and also Hitchcock films. -Jacky Ido

I'm a geek. A techie geek. -Travis Kalanick

I'm a bit of a geek, and I really like 'Buffy.' -Jordan Gavaris

School was horrific for me, constantly an outcast for being a geek. -Jameela Jamil

I was a science fiction geek. That lets you know that they come in all sizes and styles, right? -Mae Jemison

I went to anything that was on at the Lyceum in Edinburgh. I was quite geeky. There was a production of 'Look Back in Anger' with David Tennant and Kelly Reilly in it, and it blew me away. I still think about it and look back on it as the moment where I decided, 'I want to do that.' -Chloe Pirrie

I'm kind of a geek when it comes to talking about chord structures or melody, so I always loved in-depth conversations with musicians about things. I also enjoy when a fan can just put something on, and they really know nothing about music other than they like it and it touches them in some way. -M. Shadows

Man, Amy Ryan. I have geeked out so hard for her – to her face! There aren't a lot of people that can cross those lines of drama and comedy so seamlessly as Amy Ryan. -Abbi Jacobson
