I think you're right? I don't know why I thought he died. I know Dana Plato died years ago, and so did Mr. Drummond
Dana Plato on an episode of CHiPs, so sad that she died so young.
or the outrage when Dana Plato from Facts of Life posed in Playboy?
Probably not. Interestingly, it's the only thing Dana Plato was known for aside from Differn't Strokes and ODing on pain killers.

Dana Plato died in an RV in South OKC
I still miss Dana Plato, but it is old news.
A just dealt with a pharmacist that looked like Dana Plato.
How many arrests do you have?UR going to end up like Dana Plato living in an RV @ when MTV is done with u
Thanks. I was going to include that Diff'rent Strokes star Dana Plato once robbed a video store, but it seemed like too much.
did anyone tell these child actors when they grow up they'll become drug addicts or work at a dry cleaners like Dana Plato?
If Mr. Drummond had insisted that Mrs. Garrett take Kimberly with her to "The Facts of Life," Dana Plato might still be with us.
she is going to end up like Dana Plato and or Margot kidder in 1996. Just sad
After seeing many sad posts about the late Robin Williams I wanted to point out that Whitney Houston, Andrew Koenig, Ray Combs, Dana Plato, Lucy Gordon, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Heath Ledger,Cory Monteith and many others also died in the same self inflicted way. I have to ask myself is it really that sad? They had fortune and fame, people worshiped them, they could do whatever they want and yet they kill themselves. Seems to me the old saying money can't buy happiness must be extremely true. I guess no matter how famous or wealthy one can be does not change how we feel inside and that is truly sad. I surmise that happiness and inner peace can only come from within and can not be purchased. Happiness and peace can be found, it is out there, I urge you if you suffer from depression or substance abuse, seek help, accept it, work with it, there are people around you that care and are willing to help you stand up. Even though you feel all alone it does not mean that you are. Reach for a hand that will pull ...

Conrad Bain was born in Canada and was seen in primetime television for over 17 consecutive seasons. In 1972, was cast as Dr. Arthur Harmon, the liberal title character's conservative neighbor on the All in the Family spinoff Maude. Originally a widower, Arthur married Maude's (Bea Arthur) best friend Vivian, played by another future Golden Girl Rue McClanahan. Arthur was also Maude's husband Walter's (Bill Macy) best friend and army buddy. His identical twin Bonar Bain made several appearances as Arthur's twin. - After Maude ended in 1978, Bain was cast as millionaire widower Phil Drummond on the sitcom Diff'rent Strokes. The father of a teenage daughter Kimberly (Dana Plato), he adopts his late housekeeper's two sons: Arnold (Gary Coleman), 8 and Willis (Todd Bridges), age 12, who are transported from Harlem to Manhattan. A family friendly sitcom, it tackled issues such as racial and class prejudices, drug abuse, kidnapping and was one of the first to tackle the issue of molestation, the latter a ve ...

Dana Plato. Chris Farley. Phil Hartman. Heath Ledger. All taken too soon, and today, perhaps the finest actor of my generation joins them. Philip Seymour Hoffman. You left your audiences by turns disturbed, annoyed, baffled, awestruck, and inspired. Rest well, for your art will continue to astonish for generations to come.

John Connor, Haley Osmet, Dana Plato, and Jodie Sweetin. I could keep going for days.
Here's a question to ponder while we wait fir the 1/8 list deadline (some of you will be too young to answer fully, and that's sad). Looking back, would you have foreseen Kurt Cobain's suicide? Elliott Smith? River Phoenix's OD? Heath Ledger? Janis Joplin? Dana Plato? Spalding Gray? Hunter S. Thompson? Janis Joplin? Any other famous ones you would have seen coming?
You would've fit perfectly as the mom in the Cosby Show or replacement for Dana Plato in Diff'rent Strokes.
I meant we’d lay around eating butter and you could watch me stroke to Different Strokes, that Dana Plato is hot

Todd Bridges, Dana Plato, Sir Gary Coleman & Conrad Bain. Dead as the Kaiser. On the upside, I hear Tootie is doing well.
Return to Boggy Creek (1977) is a sequel, of sorts, to 1972's Legend of Boggy Creek but no where near as tense as the pseudo-shock-u-drama of its predecessor or as gory as 2012's Boggy Creek. RTBC is about three kids lost in the bayou during a thunderstorm and stalked by the Boggy Creek bigfoot. Dawn Wells (Maryanne from Gilligan's Island plays the harried mother and Dana Plato (from Diff'rent Strokes) plays the older sibling. It's no lesser or greater than the other two movies in the series.
I've learned through experience that life is never that bad. The secret is just paying attention to how you feel and not letting anyone else dictate what in your heart you know is right. Dana Plato quotes
Diff'rent Strokes is on Encore. I am wondering how many people realize Charlotte Rae outlived Dana Plato, Conrad Bain and Gary Coleman. Todd Bridges has been able to survive bullets, swords and crack cocaine.

10 THINGS?: Reply to my friend Wendy Ellison's request of, 10 things you didn't know about me. =1. I was going to move and live in Japan to model and take care of a ambassador's residence before relocating to LA. But a friend who I went to art school with, called me two weeks before my move, offered me a job in the art department at Columbia Studio in LA, designing VHS movie selves. She asked me to try LA out first, because Japan was so far away. =2. The late Dana Plato of "Different Stroke" and I became friends and she dropped by late one night crying and spent a night with me. =3. The great late Shirley Winters had a huge crash on me and had invited to her home behind the Beverly Center. =3A. I met Joan Collins in her Beverly Hills home for about a minute, while eating dinner with her 60's something German governess, Gertrude. Gertrude was a wonderful cook, she turn me on to Knorr's seasoning. She had a long list of stars who were waiting in line who wanted to employ her. She told me that, Hope Lang was ...
People that wonder how it came to be that the cast of "Diff'rent Strokes" had such tragedy visited upon them need look no further than the episode I just had the misfortune of witnessing in which Conrad Bain and Dana Plato pull double duty as Mr D and Kimberly AND the Drummonds' visiting Dutch relatives, replete with Dana playing the role of a teenage boy and Conrad in drag as "Anna." If it weren't for Matt Lauer and Al Roker's prostate exams this morning, it would easily be the most disturbing thing I've seen in eons. It's clear to me Diff'rent Strokes was opening the very gates of *** itself with this episode. They deserved every ounce of bad luck that befell them after showcasing such poppycock. I said good day, sir.
I've now outlived Dana Plato, Jayne Mansfield & Charlie Parker; and now I'm the same age as Andy Kaufman, Josh Gibson & Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Your telling me that wasn't Dana Plato playing the role of Trishelle?
Wow ! I've got to find out when they're showing this again !!!

I really thought my fame and notoriety from my National Geographic Hair Contest win would have lasted longer. I haven't been asked for a single autograph in months and the friend requests have been coming in at a trickle. Even Mikey from LIFE cereal had a longer run at fame than me. Maybe you guys can start a vicious rumor that I ate Pizza Fritte and Pop Rocks and my stomach exploded.

For all those parents who want their kids to be famous. I have something for you to think about here: Corey Haim, River Phoenix, Dana Plato, Britany Spears, Miley Cyrus, Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Christian Aguilera, Lyndsay Lohan. Need I say more?? PARENTS- It is up to you to protect your children! They may think they want fame but they aren't old enough to know what they want. I've never seen a child star yet who's life isn't screwed up almost beyond repair. IF YOU LIVE VICARIOUSLY THOROUGH YOUR CHILDREN, YOU WILL DIE VICARIOUSLY THROUGH THEM WHEN THEY DIE BEFORE THE AGE OF 30!! Lead them to Yahshua (Jesus), not to *** through fame.

Dear Conrad Bain (aka Mr.Drummond), I am sad to hear of your passing. Thank you for the work you did on Diff'rent Strokes. You played as a good man who opened his home and heart to two black orphans, thus showing the world that love is all that matters, Black or White. Even off set of the show, you were still a father figure to Todd Bridges (Willis), Gary Coleman (watchu' talkin bout Willis), and the cute Dana Plato. As a huge fan of different strokes, Thank you :)

My entire diet since 9 o'clock this morning has been breakfast at chik-fil-a which was and egg/bacon sandwich, four pack of chicken minis, hash browns and OJ. Then drove to wegmans and bought groceries and heated up a huge bowl of tortellini meatball soup and ate an entire chocolate eclair while that was cooking. Ate the soup with half a loaf of French bread with a cake-sized wedge of triple cream Brie cheese. Then had a bag of gummy bears and went to sleep. Woke up and just cooked hash browns in the skillet, a 16 oz portion of pulled pork. Ate all that along with the other half loaf of bread from lunch. Now I'm eating a box of JuJubes and thinking ice cream for dessert. Bleeehh

I'm watching a 1978 episode of Different Strokes. Here are a few things I noticed. In 1978 at the age of 5, I was the same height as 10 year Gary Coleman. My Afro was as big as Todd Bridges'. I had the biggest crush on Dana Plato(before the drug use). And for her to be a maid, Ms Garrett always got the Drummond kids to do all the work. Did she get paid???
What do you think the odds were in 1993 that Todd Bridges would outlive Conrad Bain, Gary Coleman, and Dana Plato? Ten million to one?

At least he got his fair share of time. Even Dana Plato's son is dead.
What you talking about Willis I heard Mr. Drummond died hopefully he is reunited with Gary Coleman and Dana Plato
Was watching "Different Strokes" last night. Can't believe Conrad Bain, Dana Plato and Gary Coleman are all passed away. (sad)

In the News, Conrad Bain died at the age of 89, he played the dad in DIff"rent Strokes. Did you know he was Canadian. Who is your favorite Canadian actor or actress?
Father In "Diff'Rent Strokes" Dies Even though he played the father in "Diff'rent Strokes," Conrad Bain never was a father figure to Gary Coleman, Todd Bridges and Dana Plato . As Bain told AP Radio in 1991, "they had parents of their own." Coleman, Bridges and Plato later became infamous for their personal problems. Bridges and Plato each had arrest records and drug problems. Plato OD'd in 1999. Coleman had financial and legal troubles. He died in 2010. Bain blamed the business. He said "it would take an unusual circumstance for any child to survive unscathed." Before "Diff'rent Strokes," Bain played Bea Arthur's neighbor in "Maude." Bain has now died. He was 89.
Diff'rent Strokes (Il mio amico Arnold) is an American television sitcom that aired on NBC from November 3, 1978, to May 4, 1985, and on ABC from September 27, 1985, to March 7, 1986. The series stars Gary Coleman and Todd Bridges as Arnold and Willis Jackson, two African American boys from Harlem who are taken in by a rich white Park Avenue businessman named Phillip Drummond (Conrad Bain) and his daughter Kimberly (Dana Plato), for whom their deceased mother previously worked.[2][3] During the first season and first half of the second season, Charlotte Rae also starred as the Drummonds' housekeeper, Mrs. Garrett (who ultimately spun-off into her own successful show, The Facts of Life). Francesco Girotto
I saw where Conrad Bain, who played Mr. Drummond on Different Strokes has died. It's fascinating that he Gary Coleman & Dana Plato both passed before he did. Now Todd Bridges is the only major cast member still around. Don't forget that Janet Jackson played Wilis's girlfriend.
Awww.loved this show.sorry to hear this. :( I think Todd Bridges and Charlotte Rae are the only original stars still alive from this show. Gary Coleman and Dana Plato passed away before Conrad Bain.
unlimited calling, voip, phone service
Isn't that something how he outlived Gary Colemen and Dana Plato!
How sad is it that Dana Plato and Gary Coleman both died before Mr. Drummond?
RIP Conrad Bain. Referred to as a "Father Figure" on and off-screen by Gary Coleman, Dana Plato and Todd Bridges, his work here was obviously done.
RIP Conrad Bain, aka "Mr. Drummond"! Now with the entire main cast of Diff'rent Strokes dead and gone save Tood Bridges, its not a matter of WHAT Willis is talkin' 'bout', but rather WHO he's talkin' to. :(
First Dana Plato, then Gary Coleman, now Conrad Bain...R.I.P. Philip Drummond...Todd Bridges and Charlotte Rae are the last two..
Todd Bridges is the sole survivor now! Phil, I mean Baines was hilarious! I cried when Dana Plato died, and Gary Coleman. Diff'rent Strokes is on Antenna TV tonight from 2100-2300 ET.
I see that Conrad Bain died today ... the father from Diff'rent Strokes. According to my count, Bain joins Dana Plato and Gary Coleman as dearly departed. Todd Bridges might want to keep a low profile for a few days. Just sayin'.
RIP Mr. Drummond. I wonder what Willis is talking about now that he's the only living original cast member?
Conrad Bain, a veteran stage and film actor who became a star in middle age as the kindly white adoptive father of two young African-American brothers in the TV sitcom

Today is the birthday of Madame Curie, Billy Graham, Dana Plato, and Johnny Rivers. Madame would be 145 today. She was a Polish chemist that discovered the radioactive elements radium and polonium. She also won the Nobel Peace Prize twice. The Reverend Billy is 94 today. He has been a preacher for at least 50 years. Dana would be 48 today. She played Kimberly Drummond on "Diff'rent Strokes." She overdosed in 1999. Johnny is 70 today. He is a 60s pop rock singer. His hits include "Memphis" "Secret Agent Man" "Baby I Need Your Lovin'" "Poor Side Of Town" "Summer Rain" "Rockin Pneumonia And The Boogie Woogie Flu" and "Slow Dancin' Swaying To The Music."
I randomly remembered this particular incident of years long gone. Maybe Paul and Maurice remember it too... So in 1997, two unrelated and comparatively irrelevant events occurred (I think it was '97, correct me if I am mistaken). One was that Star Wars: Episode 1: The Phantom Menace came to theatres and there were lineups outside the theatres in Toronto that lasted for WEEKS. The other event that this post relates to was the untimely death of actress Dana Plato, who played Kimberly on the 70's/80's show 'Diff'rent Strokes'. Dana Plato led a troubled life and killed herself. Now my friend Zorro (name changed to protect his dignity and identity) was all distressed and rushed that very night down to Nathan Phillips Square (also known as Toronto City Hall) to attend a candlelight vigil for Dana Plato. The complication was that right across the street from the vigil was a Star Wars line-up and the neckbeards and unwashed cosplayers populating this wriggling mass of sub-humanity were yelling at Zorro and the o ...
one of my favorite dates with Rob included seeing Jim Belushi, and flipping out over that, then gettin Chicago PD to escort us to and fro anywhere, while we were numb, via lights and sirens to Seconds City, Ditkas, Chicago Museam... all because they thought i looked like Dana Plato, (kimberly drumond)before she robbed a 7-11 and OD'ed. Man. Those were the days!

I listen to the Howard Stern and he is a lazy, lying hypocrite. Does anyone who listens to him not hear his lies? Howard Stern is not a good person. He does everything to pursue the almighty dollar. He has sued his former and current employers frequently. What good person does this? He’s also sabotaged people’s careers, wished cancer on people, contributed to the suicide of Dana Plato, etc. He missed his loyal employees’ relative’s funerals but made sure to attend celebrity funerals like Ed Bradley’s and Natasha Richardson’s funerals. Why? Because he wants to rub elbows with the rich and famous and impress his younger wife. And why did he invite former enemy Chevy Chase (who embarrassed Stern with a passive aggressive wedding speech) instead of 15 year former employee Jackie Martling? Howard also refused to help his “bro” Artie Lange who suffered from drug addiction on Howard’s show while Stern tries to now claim he had “no idea” Lange was really on drugs (sure). But he should ...
