If you’ve seen Stranger Things, you’ll probably remember Dustin as the kid who helps the boys stay optimistic when things get… ominous, to say the least.

It turns out Gaten Matarazzo, the actor who plays Dustin, is just as sweet as his character.

On his Instagram account Tuesday, 13-year-old Matarazzo announced a new rule for fans who stop him on the street to take a photo: He gets to take his own selfie with them, too. 

“I’m starting a new thing,” Matarazzo wrote. “Every fan that stops me and asks me to take a picture with them, I will ask them to take a picture with me because they mean as much to me as I mean to them.”

Extremely cute stuff.
