Although her parents wanted her to marry a nice, rich Jewish boy, Claman moved from Central Park West to Greenwich Village and started as a Production Assistant at the Dumont network.

Mentored by powerful women in television like Renee Valente and Rose Tobias, Claman eventually became an influential casting director, running her own business in New York City and becoming known as the “Queen of Commercials.” She also made her mark in film and television drama, casting Richard Gere and Sam Shepard in early film roles in Days of Heaven and unwillingly leaving her beloved Manhattan to follow the industry to Los Angeles.
