'''''Cliff: '''''"Because we did not want five.") In her first appearance, she is a sophomore in college, 20 years old putting her birth year in 1964. She earned a degree from [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princeton_University Princeton University]. She married her boyfriend, [[Elvin Tibideaux]], in Season Four, and later gave birth to twins - a boy and a girl - named after [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nelson_Mandela Nelson] and [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winnie_Mandela Winnie Mandela]. More serious, earnest and responsible than the other children, Sondra fits many of the characteristics of an eldest child. Though she had her moments of bizarre thinking (''e.g.''- dropping out of law school to open an outdoor shop), she'd usually snap out of them relatively quickly. Because of her intelligence level and overachieving nature, she's looked upon by her parents proudly, but also is held to a higher standard than the rest of the children. Sondra was created when Bill Cosby wanted the show to express the accomplishment of successfully raising a child (''e.g.''- a college graduate). [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitney_Houston Whitney Houston] was considered for the role of Sondra Huxtable, but did not want to give up her burgeoning music career. Sabrina LeBeauf almost missed out on the role because she is only 10 years younger (b. 1958) than [[Phylicia Rashād]] (b. 1948). The character is loosely based upon Cosby's eldest daughter, Erika, who was approximately the same age as Sondra.
