Cosby originally intended for the character to be a plumber, but the producers and Camille ultimately convinced him to rewrite her into a lawyer to reflect a family that closer resembled their own. At one point, Clair had also been envisioned as a Dominican housewife who speaks Spanish when frustrated, inspired by Ricky Ricardo from the sitcom I Love Lucy, but this idea was also abandoned. Rashad, originally credited as Phylicia Ayers-Allen, won the role by exhibiting a subtlety in her audition that other candidates lacked. After marrying husband Ahmad Rashad and adopting his surname, Rashad became pregnant with their child during the show’s third season, thus requiring her to conceal her pregnancy during episode tapings. Clair was created for The Cosby Show by series creator, comedian Bill Cosby. Cosby originally pitched a series about a detective who solves crime using his wit and humor; Clair’s earliest incarnation resembled his character’s girlfriend, who is depicted as “a strong woman with her own career.”
