    The character of Sondra, the Huxtables' eldest daughter, was added almost as an afterthought. In the pilot, 'Phyllicia Rashad's' Clair Huxtable mentions the couple's four children (Sondra makes it five). They decided there should be another child that represented the results of a good upbringing, hence a daughter in college. When casting the role, it came down to two actresses: 26-year-old Sabrina Le Beauf and 21-year-old Whitney Houston. LeBeauf's theater experience won her the role.
