"Stranger Things" fans have declared their love for Barb, and Eleven is undoubtedly super badass, but I personally just can't get enough of Dustin. Let's be real: The entire cast is ridiculously amazing, and choosing a favorite is no easy feat. But Dustin speaks to me on many levels. He's funny, sincere, loyal, and is constantly thinking about food.
The actor who plays him, Gaten Matarazzo, is equally awesome — and he's a fan favorite with the show's viewers too. If you're not already obsessed with Matarazzo, here are 13 reasons why you should be.
He's got the most angelic singing voice.
I was caught off-guard by a kid choosing a "Les Miz" song to sing at a karaoke party, but of course it makes sense considering he starred in the show on Broadway. Truthfully, Matarazzo could have sang "Happy Birthday" and I would have been blown away.
He's relentless in the pursuit of his dreams.
He first auditioned for "Les Misérables" when he was seven years old, but didn't get the part. But when you have a dream, you don't give up. He kept auditioning year after year and finally landed the role of Gavroche when he was ten.
