Sabrina Le Beauf (born March 21, 1958) is an American actress best known for her portrayal of Sondra Huxtbale-Tibideaux on the The Cosby Show. She has voiced the character Norma Bindlebeep on the Nick at Nite animated series Fatherhood, a show based on Bill Cosby's book of the same name.

The Cosby Show and later[edit | edit source]

Le Beauf almost missed the role of Sondra on The Cosby Show, because she was only 10 years younger than Phylicia Rashād, the actress who played her mother, Clair Huxtable.

The character of Sondra did not appear in the pilot. The family at that point consisted of only four children, with Denise Huxtable, played by Lisa Bonet, as the eldest. With the addition of Sondra, Theo became the middle child. Sondra was known for her philosophical statements and intelligence, traits she displayed as an undergraduate at Princeton University.[1]

Le Beauf is a frequent leading lady performing with the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, DC. She recently portrayed Katherine in The Taming of the Shrew with the Company in DC.

Le Beauf also appeared on two episodes of 'Star Trek: The Next Generation, "Gambit Parts I & II" as Ensign Giusti.
