TMZ (ugh) is reporting that Conrad Bain, star of DIFF'RENT STROKES, has passed away. Fans of DARK SHADOWS will remember that Bain had an occasionally reoccurring role as Collinsport Inn manager Mr. Wells, who ultimately died at the hands of werewolf Chris Jennings.
Bain family sources tell TMZ, Bain died Monday night in Livermore, CA. So far, details surrounding his death are unclear.
We spoke with Bain's daughter Jennifer who tells us, "He was an amazing person. He was a lot like Mr. Drummond, but much more interesting in real life. He was an amazing father."
Bain -- who became a household name starring opposite Gary Coleman and Todd Bridges on the iconic 80s series -- is survived by his three sons and one daughter. He also has a surviving twin brother Bonar Bain.
