Cuban-American actress Louisa Moritz, one of the women who accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault, is planning to sue the comedian and also encouraging other victims to join the suit.

"I want him to write each of us a letter and admit what he's done. He could explain that he's had a problem all his life and finally wants to change something. That would be a good start. He must apologize. He has not accepted one single thing," the 68-year-old actress told the New York Daily News on Monday.

Moritz, best known for her role as Rose in the Oscar-winning "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "Last American Virgin", alleged that "The Cosby Show" star sexually assaulted her in a dressing room before appearing on Johnny Carson's "Tonight Show" in 1971. A present, she is consulting with her lawyers to file a class-action lawsuit against Cosby.

The actress said that she was in the dressing room when Cosby knocked on her door and entered. He initially praised her for her acting skills. She said that Cosby tried to flatter her with an offer to "make her a major star". Immediately after making the offer, she said, Cosby "suddenly approached me and took out his penis, which was now in the line of my face and pressed up against it. He took his hands and put them on the back of my head and forced his penis in my mouth, saying, 'Have a taste of this. It will do you good in so many ways,'" Atlanta Daily World reports.

She alleged that when Cosby was done, he said, "Now you don't want to upset me and the plans for your future, do you?"

He also warned her of dire consequences if she told anyone about the incident.

According to Fox News, Moritz believes that even if the case is thrown out, it would be significant as it would show women to stand united to fight such kind of abuse.

Cosby's attorney Martin Singer condemned the "decades-old -old discredited allegations" and also denied them. In a statement on Friday, he suggested that Cosby's accusers might be hoping for something else. "There has never been a shortage of lawyers willing to represent people with claims against rich, powerful men, so it makes no sense that not one of these new women who just came forward for the first time now ever asserted a legal claim back at the time they allege they had been sexually assaulted."
