The list of women accusing comedian Bill Cosby of sexual assault grew Wednesday as two actresses and a former airline attendant added to the lurid allegations.

Standing before television cameras, Eden Tirl, who appeared on “The Cosby Show;” 1970s movie actress Linda Ridgeway and former American Airlines flight attendant Colleen Hughes joined three dozen other women who have accused Cosby of wrongdoing over several decades.

Tirl said she gained the courage to come forward because other women had. She said she was locked in a dressing room with Cosby during a taping of his show in 1989 when he sexually assaulted her.

Ridgeway, who appeared with the late actor Charles Bronson in the 1972 film “The Mechanic,” said Cosby assaulted her in an office as he interviewed her for a part.
