4 Reasons Gaten Matarazzo Is One Of The Most Exciting Young Talents

Gaten Matarazzo is one of the biggest and brightest talents in the industry right now. Whether he’s singing his heart out, delivering a heart-wrenching bit of acting, or teaming up with Netflix for a few pranks, Gaten gives it his all and we are very big fans! Now that the fourth season of Stranger Things has given him more recognition, we wanted to show our appreciation for the wonderful person that he is!

His Acting

We don’t know about you, but we think Gaten‘s acting is incredible. We don’t think there’s any genre where he wouldn’t be able to fit right in. His comedic timing is impeccable, he can play it romantic or be the lovable loner and just smash it. Don’t even get us started on the final episode of Stranger Things S4. That was just a masterclass in acting from Gaten and one we will not recover from any time soon.

If you’re not into sci-fi and still wanted to familiarise yourself with Gaten’s work so far, you can catch him in Honor Society! Gaten performs alongside Angourie Rice in this high school dark comedy about the competition for a college scholarship and the girl who will stop at nothing to get it. It’s streaming now on Paramount Plus and you just have to add it to your watch list. You won’t regret it!

His Voice

Not only is Gaten a top-caliber performer, but he also has the most incredible voice! Some of the most prolific singers and actors today grew up on Broadway, such as Anna Kendrick, Ariana Grande, and Christian Slater. Even Gaten and his Stranger Things co-stars Sadie Sink and Caleb McLaughlin first met each other while performing in the Big Apple.

Gaten has had several projects recently that have showcased his immense vocal talent and it’s just left us wanting more. While ‘Never Ending Story’ will always have a special place in our hearts, Gaten’s rendition of Alicia Keys‘ ‘Fallin” in Honor Society blew us away. Those vocals were just so smooth and mature, the skill you have to have to sing like that is insane. It’ll be no surprise to most, then, that Gaten is currently starring in Dear Evan Hanson on Broadway. He’s killing it as Jared right now and we wouldn’t expect anything less!


We asked #GatenMatarazzo to do a 2022 version of this @TheaterMania video he did while he was in Les Misérables in 2014, and he DELIVERED. #dearevanhansen #broadway #musicals

He’s An Advocate For So Many

One thing that everyone should know about Gaten is that he consistently uses his platform for good. Whether it’s raising awareness and educating himself on the Black Lives Matter movement, encouraging people to get vaccinated, or sharing his experiences growing up with Cleidocranial Dysplasia, Gaten uses his voice to uplift others. We love when celebrities use their influence to try and make the world a better place!

He’s A Lovely Person

While some people in Hollywood lose themselves in the show biz blur, that hasn’t happened here. Gaten is renowned for being down-to-earth, kind, and warm with everyone he meets. Whether it’s at a convention, on set, or a chance meeting on the street – no one has a bad word about Gaten! We love that fame hasn’t changed him and he’s still the same excitable, kind-hearted person he was from the start. Don’t ever change, Gaten!

We know some casts can have a bit of drama, but it’s only love from Gaten’s castmates. You only have to look to the Stranger Things family to see how positively they all talk about him. Speaking of, we hope someone checks in on Joe Keery sometime now that Gaten is 20!
