When thinking of Phylicia Rashad, many think of a beautiful, loving, motherly figure. This comes from her portrayal as Claire Huxtable on the iconic series, “The Cosby Show.” Outside of her “Cosby” role on the follow-up series, Phylicia Rashad has been out of the spotlight, mostly.
Phylicia Rashad has made guest appearances on many shows, sitcoms, and movies. Among the guest appearances Phylicia Rashad made was on “Everybody Hates Chris.” Now, she is making her return on one of television’s biggest platforms.
Since debuting in January 2015, FOX’s “Empire” has been television’s number one show. Created by Lee Daniels and starring Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, the hip hop-themed show has done well. Phylicia Rashad is now added to the show, playing as the mother of councilman, Angelo Dubois (Taye Diggs), whom she is trying to groom into more.
