Heather Thomas attended Santa Monica High School in Santa Monica, California before enrolling at UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television in Los Angeles, California from which she graduated in 1980. Heather was interested in and dedicated to acting since she was a teenager – her first role dates back to the age of only 14; she was one of the hosts of NBC’s series “Talking with a Giant” in which she interviewed celebrities. However, Heather Thomas’ official acting debut came in 1978 when she appeared in one episode of the crime TV series “David Cassidy – Man Undercover”. This was immediately followed by a side role in “Co-Ed Fever”, a short-lived sitcom aired on CBS.

These engagements, despite being quite modest, provided the basis for Heather Thomas’ net worth, and also helped her to dive deeper into the acting world.

The real breakthrough in Heather’s career came with the role of Jody Banks in Glen A. Larson’s TV series “The Fall Guy”, featuring Lee Majors in the leading role. The show aired for five seasons between 1981 and 1986, and Heather’s appearance in all of the 112 episodes helped her to establish herself as a competent actress as well as to significantly increase her net worth.

In the course of the next several years, throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Heather Thomas managed to maintain a continuous string of various acting projects and engagements, including TV series and movie appearances in “The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo” (1980), “Zapped” (1982), “The Love Boat” (1983) as well as the 1987 “Hoover vs. the Kennedys: The Second Civil War” drama series in which she portrayed the most iconic woman of Hollywood’s golden era and further – Marilyn Monroe. All these achievements made a positive impact on Heather Thomas’ net worth.

Some other notable big screen appearances by Heather include two 1987 movies, the sci-fi drama “Cyclone”, and biographical drama about the father of the American automobile industry Henry Ford – “Ford: The Man and the Machine”. In 1997, Heather Thomas starred in “Against the Law”, opposite Nancy Allen and Richard Grieco. All these accomplishments contributed to Thomas’ overall net worth in a positive way.

Heather Thomas’ most recent acting engagement includes an action movie about navy SEALS’s rescue mission named “Classified” which is currently in pre-production and is soon expected to hit the cinemas.

In 2008, Heather Thomas’ first novel was published, named “Trophies”, adding somewhat to her net worth.

When it comes to her personal life, Heather Thomas was married to Alan Rosenthal, although that marriage lasted for one year only between 1985 and 1986. Since 1992, Heather has been married to Harry M. Brittenham with whom he has one child.

Heather Thomas has acknowledged that during the 1980s she had severe drug addiction problems. It all began during her high school period when she began taking acid on a regular basis, which later became a cocaine addiction. After joining St. John’s Hospital’s drug rehabilitation program, Heather Thomas managed to overcome her drug addiction and is now considered clean.

Quotes

#Quote
1[Who said about Lee Majors, who played Colt Seavers, who in turn saw her got stoned off-camera]: I think he saw me passing out, once or twice, and I think he told people you might need some help. He was very supportive.
2Even on The Fall Guy (1981), yes, I was the grotesque sex. But I also got to have a lot of fun, I got to drive a lot of funny cars. I learned to shoot all sorts of things and get in stunt fights. It wasn't Shakespeare, but it's fun!
3[Who said about protecting herself, while living her own life]: I was not going to live in fear, and carry a gun. So, I had a bodyguard kinda living with me.
4[on obsessed fans that were closer to her]: A couple of times, though, we had to get restraining orders, and there were guys who were climbing over the backgate with a knife, and another guy broken by my Brentwood home. They were trying to break in.
5In our society, you know, there are people who are broken and your poster hangs in jail, as your poster hangs in jail, as your poster hangs in wards, so, I had a lot of stalkers.
6I won't take my clothes off because I can't believe it's necessary. You can be sexy with your clothes on just as well as you can by taking off your blouse.
