So sad. Conrad Bain, who played the father on ‘Diff’rent Strokes,’ died on Jan. 14 surrounded by his family in Livermore, CA.
“He was an amazing person. He was a lot like Mr. Drummond, but much more interesting in real life. He was an amazing father,” Conrad’s daughter Jennifer told TMZ, comparing her father to his Diff’rent Strokes character Philip Drummond.
The actor, who would have turned 90 on Feb. 4, last made his mark in television on the series Unforgettable — he starred in one episode in 2011. Before that, it was an appearance on an episode of The French Prince of Bel-Air in 1996.
