Hyndman was born in Ottawa, but grew up in Paradise, Newfoundland. Although he never aspired to be a television personality, his relationship and chemistry with Steven Sabados and their collective eye for design launched their TV career. Together, Hyndman and Sabados starred in several design shows produced in the Toronto area, including "Designer Guys" from 2001 to 2004, "Design Rivals" in 2004, and then "So Chic with Steven and Chris," which was on the air from 2005 to 2007. In 2008, Hyndman and Sabados starred together in "Steven and Chris," possibly the first daytime talk show hosted by a married same-sex couple. The show grew in success after a rough start, leading to eventual syndication in the United States.
On Aug. 3, 2015, Chris Hyndman was found unresponsive near his apartment. Shortly announcing the news of his death, CBC ended production of "Steven and Chris" at the request of Sabados.Learn more about Art & Literature
