Heather Anne Thomas (born September 8, 1957) is an American actress, author, and political activist, who co-starred as Jody Banks on the ABC-TV series The Fall Guy.

Thomas was born to Gladdy Lou Ryder, a special education teacher in the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District. She 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.

Thomas started acting at age 14, when she was one of the hosts of a series on NBC called Talking with a Giant, where she interviewed celebrities. In 1978 she began acting in small television roles; she appeared in the series Co-Ed Fever, of which she later said "It was canceled after the third commercial." She played the part of "Jody Banks" in Lee Majors' ABC-TV series The Fall Guy television series from 1981 to 1986, when the show was canceled. She entered rehabilitation for cocaine addiction in 1984. She appeared in several movies but quit acting in 1998. Thomas appeared on numerous pin-up posters during the 1980s.

Following her acting career, Thomas wrote a screenplay called "School Slut" and sold it to Touchstone Pictures for a figure reported as "mid-six-figure". Touchstone did not 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.
