Bonar Stewart Bain (February 4, 1923 – February 18, 2005)[2][3] was a Canadian actor and the identical twin brother of actor Conrad Bain, who starred in the television sitcom Diff'rent Strokes as Phillip Drummond and "Maude" as Arthur Harmon. He once played a fictional “evil” twin to Conrad (“Hank Bain”) in an episode of SCTV. He also portrayed Arthur's (Conrad Bain) twin brother Arnold on Maude. He was born in Lethbridge, Alberta.

In popular culture[edit]

Bain figures in the lyrics to “Bober,” a song from the Mike Keneally Band’s 2004 album Dog. Keneally sings that his dog, Bober, was “half-named after Conrad Bain’s brother.”[4]
