Cameron Thor, pictured here in a scene from the 1993 movie Jurassic Park is facing rape charges for having sex with a 13-year-old girl.

Cameron Thor, a Los Angeles acting coach who has appeared in such movies as Jurassic Park, apparently took his method acting too far with a 13-year-old girl. He’s been arrested and charged with sexual assault for carrying on a year-long affair.

Police said the 54-year-old actor was being held last night on $2.6 million bond. He’s also been charged with rape, sexual penetration, kidnap and robbery, according to the local CBS television affiliate.

The girl attended classes with Thor. Afterward, he drove her to a secluded spot where they allegedly had sex. The incidents occurred between April 2008 and March 2009.

His acting school, known as the Carter Thor Studio, is apparently well known and widely used. It boasts that it’s clients have included Madonna, Cameron Diaz, Gwen Stefani, Helen Hunt and Sylvester Stallone.

The circumstances suggest that the alleged sex may have been consensual, but it’s still considered a major felony because of the girl’s age. The age of consent in California is 18.

The greater the age difference between the individual the more severe the crime, according to California statute. Having sex with someone under 16 is a serious felony.

Thor’s partner, Alice Carter, could not be reached for comment, and the school’s Web site could not be reached.
