Very few details are available about Martyn’s life, especially his early years. There is nothing known about his childhood, education, and how he came to aspire to become a writer.

Ex-Wife Chrissy Metz
Chrissy began her acting career in 2005, appearing in several films mainly in support roles, as well as similar roles on television, appearing as a guest in “Entourage”, “My Name Is Earl”, and “Huge”. Her popularity increased significantly when she was cast in 2014’s fourth season of “American Horror Story: Freak Show” as Barbara, set in 1952 Jupiter, Florida, and focused on one of the last remaining freak shows in the US struggling for survival. Cast members from the previous season returned, and the show gained positive reviews.
Her work lead to another role, in the 2016 show “This Is Us” which earned her critical acclaim.

While not many details have been shared about Eaden and Metz’s relationship, it is known that the two started dating sometime in the early 2000s, during the early part of her career. They eventually married in 2008 in a private ceremony attended by family and friends.

Despite being together for many years, the two never had children, and cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their divorce. This was after the fact that Metz had lost a huge amount of weight after appearing in “This Is Us”. However, one of the rumors that spread states that that Metz’ increasing popularity might have taken a toll on their relationship, as Eaden was not used to that kind of fame when they started their marriage. However, the rumor has never been confirmed.
Martyn and Chrissy’s divorce was finalized in 2015, and the couple moved on with their lives. According to reports, he became more active in the film industry writing screenplays for films such as “Death Factory” which tells the story of strangers who bring to life six dead serial killers and then proceed to hunt them. Another is “Spurned” which was released in 2016, and is a short film that tells the story of a recently broken-up couple, and contains some thriller elements. Martyn remains private about his endeavors, and it is not known if he is in a new relationship.
Metz started a relationship with Josh Stancil who works in the camera and electrical department of films, having included “The Hangover”, “I Love You, Man”, and “Due Date”. They stayed together for two years but confirmed that their relationship had ended in 2018.
Martyn Eaden on Social Media
One of the reasons why there is very little information about Eaden’s past or current endeavors is due to the fact that he does not have any strong on-line presence. He does not have accounts associated with any of the major social media websites. His ex-wife on the other hand is similar to numerous actresses, in that she is highly active online on websites such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, manly using them to promote her recent and upcoming endeavors, including the release of an autobiography entitled “This Is Me”.
