Gaten John Matarazzo

Netflix has been taken by storm the past two years by its new hit, “Stranger Things”. One of the stars of the show comes in an unlikely form, in that of the acting talents of Gaten John Matarazzo. Earning Gaten’s most recognized role as Dustin Henderson in the Netflix hit, “Stranger Things” has made him a sudden celebrity. Gaten has also been seen on other productions such as the broadway stage in “Les Miserables” and “Priscilla.” Before he was famous in 2011, he was cast as an alternate for the broadway stage production of “Priscilla Queen of the Desert:the Musical”.


On top of Gaten’s success as a child-actor, he must balance his career with his health and family. He is afflicted with the condition Cleidocranial Dysplasia which is a condition that causes a delayed development of bones. In “Stranger Things,” Gaten’s character also has this disease. A move the director made because they thought that they should add this to his character. Gaten has two siblings, Sabrina and Carmen. who both act in television commercials. He is the middle child. Sabrina is four years older than Gaten and Carmen is one year younger.
