How to pronounce gaten matarazzo

American actor Gaten John Matarazzo III (pronounced getano matraso) is an actor and musician who is best known for his role as Dustin Henderson in the Netflix science fiction-horror drama series Stranger Things. He has also starred on Broadway as Benjamin in Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Gavroche in Les Miserables, and made his television debut in 2013 with a small role on the AXN criminal drama series The Blacklist. Matarazzo was born in New London, Connecticut, and raised in Little Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, and he is of Italian descent. He was born with cleidocranial dysplasia, which causes underdeveloped collar bones and impacts the development of facial and skull bones, and Matarazzo has used his platform to raise awareness for the disorder.

In addition to his work on Stranger Things, Matarazzo has hosted the Netflix show Prank Encounters, starred in the Paramount+ film Honor Society, and voiced Boris the Dragon in Cartoon Saloon’s animated fantasy comedy film My Father’s Dragon. He is also a member of the final Broadway cast of the musical Dear Evan Hansen as Jared Kleinman, and he will return to the stage for the Encores! production of Parade in 2022.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show, Matarazzo revealed that he’s living in “deep fear” of the end of Stranger Things, which will wrap up its fifth and final season this year. The show has become a cultural phenomenon, starring Millie Bobby Brown, Noah Schnapp, Finn Wolfhard, Sadie Sink, Cara Buono, and David Harbour.
