'The Fall Guy': This Is "Jody Banks" Today
For many fans of the TV show The Fall Guy, the fast-paced action scenes weren't the only reason to watch popular series. Heather Thomas, starring as "Jody Banks", turned heads the world over, but what is the gorgeous actress up to now?
When the actress first appeared as an ambitious stunt woman "Jody Banks" in the action series The Fall Guy from 1981 to 1986, Heather Thomas (63) became a Hollywood sex symbol overnight. Starring alongside Lee Majors and Douglas Barr with her low-cut outfits and a sexy attitude, she made the hearts of millions beat faster and was one of the most sought after pin-up-models of the 1980s.
After starring in the popular action series, she appeared in numerous movies such as Against the Law, as well as in countless TV shows like The Love Boat, T.J. Hooker and Pointman. Heather Thomas ended her career rather abruptly in the late nineties, due to the major stalking that occurred in her life, and instead focused on her writing.
