Heather Thomas (born September 8, 1957 in Greenwich, Connecticut) is an American actress, screenwriter and a political activist, best known for her co-starring role of Jody Banks on the 1980s television series The Fall Guy.
Heather Thomas started acting in 1978 in small television roles. She got her biggest part as "Jody Banks" in 1981 in Lee Majors' The Fall Guy television series and held that role until 1986, when the show was cancelled. She appeared in a few movies over the next several years but quit acting in 1998. Thomas was a phenomenally popular pin-up girl during the 1980s, appearing on numerous posters and supplanting Raquel Welch as the most popular pin-up girl in America.
Following her acting career, Thomas tried her hand at screenwriting, and after writing some 40 screenplays finally sold a script called School Slut to Touchstone Pictures for a six-figure sum. Touchstone didn't make the film, however, and Thomas acquired the rights to produce it herself.
In April 2008, Thomas' first novel, Trophies, was published by William Morrow.
Thomas was born to Gladdy Lou Ryder, who was a special education teacher in the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District. Thomas graduated from Santa Monica High School in 1975 and went on to attend UCLA Film School, graduating in 1980. While at UCLA, she was a member of the Chi Omega sorority and was romantically linked with then unknown actor Corbin Bernsen. She overcame a cocaine addiction in the 1980s. Thomas married entertainment attorney Skip Brittenham in October 1992. Their daughter, India Rose, was born on June 19, 2000. Thomas also has two other daughters.
