LOS ANGELES — A 54-year-old acting coach, who’s also appeared in bit parts in movies such as “Jurassic Park,” has been charged with kidnapping and raping a girl who approached him for lessons, authorities said.

Cameron Thor was charged this week in connection with the attack on a 13-year-old girl in 2008, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said.

According to authorities, the girl met with Thor about attending acting classes. After the meeting, he allegedly drove her to a secluded area and, according to police, sexually assaulted her.

Officials did not say why the incident is only now coming to light.

Sheriff’s Deputy Chrystal Hernandez told CNN that Thor confirmed to one of the investigating detectives that he played a small role in “Jurassic Park.”

His IMDB profile says he also appeared in “Hook” and “A Few Good Men.”

Thor does not have listed representation.

He was arraigned Thursday and is being held on $2.6 million bail.

    This story just doesn’t sound right. It really makes you wonder why they took so long to come forward and press charges.

      Sometimes it takes that long for a child, (13 is a child), to tell anyone. They have a range of emotions and do not know how to deal with it. As adults they begin to understand and then come forward.
      It is not unusual for a child to tell nobody for years.

      Faith makes a great point. If she was 13 in 2008 then she is now over the age of 18 and an adult. Without knowing someone who has been the victim of this type of crime, it is a lot harder to understand. It seems that a lot of times young girls fall victim as they start to mature some and once they hit 18, their abuser is no longer interested. It’s so sad to read this type of stuff. Makes me extremely upset to read about it. The damage done to these children can last a lifetime and can damage or ruin chances for a real relationship down the road. Glad to see him brought to justice and hopefully the legal system will not fail and he will be put away for many, many years so he can not hurt anyone else.
