Gaten Matarazzo, one of the stars of the popular Netflix series “Stranger Things,” recently expressed his concern about the show’s eventual end. The young actor revealed that he has a deep fear of losing his job security and returning to freelance work once the show concludes.
Matarazzo, who plays the character of Dustin Henderson on the hit show, has been with the series since its debut in 2016. The show has become a cultural phenomenon, with a massive fan base and critical acclaim. However, as the show’s fourth season is set to be released in the near future, Matarazzo is aware that the end is in sight.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Matarazzo shared his thoughts on the show’s eventual conclusion. “I have a deep fear that I’m losing job security,” he admitted. “With acting, it’s always back to freelance, back to the beginning, and with this show, I’ve been so blessed that it’s not been that way.”
Matarazzo went on to explain how the show has given him a sense of stability and security that he hasn’t experienced before. “It’s given me a sense of job security, which I never thought I would have,” he said. “It’s always been kind of a rocky road, but with this show, it’s been steady, and I’m very grateful for that.”
The actor’s fears are not unwarranted. Freelance work can be unpredictable, with actors often struggling to find steady work after a successful project ends. However, Matarazzo’s talent and popularity suggest that he will have no trouble finding work in the future.
Despite his concerns about job security, Matarazzo remains grateful for his time on “Stranger Things” and the impact it has had on his life. “I’m happy to have been a part of this show,” he said. “It’s been an incredible experience, and I’m so grateful for it.”
In the end, Matarazzo’s fear of losing job security is a common concern among actors, particularly those who have experienced a level of success. However, his talent and hard work suggest that he will continue to thrive in his career long after “Stranger Things” has ended.
