Heidi Thomas - one of Bill Cosby's accusers
Heidi Thomas is one of more than 50 women who have accused veteran US actor and comedian Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting and stupefying them. The accusations have only recently come to light against Cosby, who is now 78 years old, but some complaints date as far back as 1965. Heidi Thomas was an aspiring model and actress and she claims she was drugged and sexually assaulted, in the 1980s. She says in 1984 her agency sent her to Reno, where Bill Cosby was doing some shows, and the actor asked her to perform a monologue for him - she later woke up to find that he was naked in bed with her. She like many of the other women are now speaking out, after staying quiet for decades.
