Malcolm says the set brings back great memories—his mom even started to cry when she saw it. "One of the reasons why the Huxtables came off so well and worked so well on camera is because we all really, really liked each other," Malcolm says. "People would come to the set and talk about how that was such a rare thing."
Tempestt says shooting the show in New York City was a positive experience for the cast. "Mr. Cosby's family was based in New York, and there was never a question of taping in Los Angeles," Tempestt says. "We were in Brooklyn, in Queens, and all these other kids were out [there] and exposed to all the things that Hollywood has. We were ensconced in these incredible little communities, and we had these incredible families, and our parents were there and were very supportive."
