There’s nothing strange about Gaten Matarazzo‘s new paycheck.
The Stranger Things actor just got a well-deserved pay increase for the third season of hugely popular Netflix series. Just how much is the 15-year-old making? A whopping a 1,200 percent more than what he was raking in last season.
According to Gaten’s original contract, he was scheduled to get a slight salary increase for the upcoming season, much like he did for season 2. The docs, obtained by TMZ, show he was due a bump of slightly less than $1,000 per episode — from $16,800 to $17,640 per episode in season 3.
Nothing to sneeze at, but according to multiple reports, Gaten and his co-stars renegotiated their deals and will now make between $200 to $250 THOUSAND per episode for season 3!!
