Conrad was interested in acting from the early years of his life, so he decided to study at the Banff School of Fine Arts. However, his studies were interupted by the beginning of World War II, as he joined the Canadian Army. After the war, Bain continued his studies this time at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, graduating in 1948, along with comedian Don Rickles. His first appearances included at the Stratford Festival in Canada, and then continued with a role in the 1956 Broadway revival of „The Iceman Cometh“, with his performance being extraordinarily well-reviewed. Bain continued his Broadway career in shows such as „Advise and Consent“, „Candide“, „Uncle Vanya“, „An Enemy of the People“ and „On Borrowed Time“, laying the base to his net worth.

While in New York City, he also found work on television, and starred in the „Dark Shadows“ soap opera in the first two seasons of the show. In the early ’60s, Conrad was among the main organizers of the Actors Federal Credit Union, serving as its first president. He later appeared in films such as Woody Allen’s „Bananas“, „Lovers and Other Strangers“, Clint Eastwood’s „Coogan’s Bluff“, Sean Connery’s „The Anderson Tapes“ and Gene Hackman’s „I Never Sang for My Father“, but didn’t earn national recognition until landing his most famous roles on television, as Dr. Arthur Harmon in the TV series „Maude“(1972-78) and millionaire Phillip Drummond in „Different Strokes“(1978-86). Bain reprised his role of Drummond in an episode of TV series „The Facts of Life“ and „Hello, Larry“ and finally in series finale of „The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air“ in 1996, which was also one of his last appearances. Bain also starred alongside Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine in „Postcards from the Edge“(1990), so consistently adding to his net worth.

After the ’90s, Conrad withdrew from acting and turned to screen writing before retirement.

Privately, Conrad was married to Monica Sloan from 1945 until her death in 2009, and the couple had three children. He had an identical twin brother, Bonar Bain who was also an actor, and who appeared alongside Conrad in various TV series, including “SCTV Network”, “SCTV Network: Zontar” and “Maude”, predominantly playing his evil twin brother. Conrad moved to Livermore, California in 2008, and died after suffering from a stroke a month before his 90th birthday, on 14th January 2013.
