He worked for Hudson's Bay Company in the makeup department before being employed by Citytv as a makeup artist.
Hyndman was born in Ottawa and grew up in the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland and Labrador. He first met Sabados through mutual friends at a Toronto bar in 1988. They moved in together three months later. Despite being a longtime couple off-screen, they did not publicly acknowledge their relationship until 2007. They married a year later.
Hyndman and his husband Steven Sabados launched the interior design firm Sabados Group in 1992.
Aside from private clientele, they also did set design work for various television productions in the Toronto area, and later starred in the first three seasons of Designer Guys, a Canadian design show. In 2004, Sabados and Hyndman debuted a new show with a similar format, titled Design Rivals, and a makeover show called So Chic with Steven and Chris in 2005.
On August 3, 2015, Hyndman was found unresponsive in a laneway directly below the condominium unit he shared with Sabados in Toronto, shortly after 11 p.m. EDT. He was pronounced dead shortly after. He was 49 years old. Hyndman and Sabados had just returned from a vacation in Barbados one day earlier.
Following Hyndman's death, production and airing of Steven and Chris was suspended pending a decision from Sabados on whether he wanted to continue the show on his own or with a new co-host. On August 21, 2015, Sabados announced that he would not continue the show, resulting in its cancellation. In May 2016, Sabados gave his first in-depth media interview since Hyndman's death, telling Heather Hiscox of CBC News that Hyndman was the "idea guy" in their personal and professional partnership. Around the same time, Sabados announced that he was creating a new daytime talk show, The Goods, to premiere on CBC in fall 2016 with co-hosts Jessi Cruickshank, Andrea Bain and Shahir Massoud. According to Sabados, while he couldn't imagine returning to television on his own or with a single replacement co-host for Hyndman, the new show's four-host panel format felt more comforting and freeing for him.
While no confirmed cause of death has been released, the Toronto Police indicated that it was not considered a criminal matter, leading many to suspect it may have been a suicide. Two days after his death, his mother told the media that Hyndman was a sleepwalker, and she believes he fell off the couple's balcony during a sleep walk. In May 2016, Sabados said he does not share this view.
Chris married Steven Sabados in 2008 and was with him until his death.
Currently, Chris Hyndman is 57 years, 3 months and 6 days old. Chris Hyndman will celebrate 58th birthday on a Sunday 3rd of March 2024. Below we countdown to Chris Hyndman upcoming birthday.
