Gaten Matarazzo

Actor Gaten Matarazzo began his career at an early age on the Broadway stage before landing the role of comic relief Dustin Henderson on 80s-set TV mystery "Stranger Things" (Netflix, 2016-). Born in Little Egg Harbor Township, NJ in 2003, Matarazzo started acting, singing and dancing as a young boy and landed his first notable role aged just eight playing Benji, the son of drag queen Tick, in the Broadway hit, "Priscilla, the Queen of the Desert." Matarazzo then starred as Jesus in "Godspell Cast of 2032," a production of the hit musical staged to launch a new generation of stars, before joining the national touring cast of "Les Miserables" as street urchin-turned-revolutionary Gavroche. In 2015, Matarazzo appeared on screen for the first time when he guested on "The Blacklist" (NBC, 2013-) as a young suicide bomber brainwashed by a murderous cult, and a year later bagged his first recurring part as Dustin Henderson, an outgoing friend of the missing boy at the center of the mystery, in the Duffer brothers' critically-acclaimed series "Stranger Things" (Netflix, 2016-).
