Just Who Is Acting Coach, Cameron Thor?

54-year-old Jurassic Park actor and acting coach Cameron Thor has been arrested on suspicion of kidnapping and raping a 13-year-old girl he had been giving acting classes. Thor has been accused of sexually assaulting the girl over the period of a year, apparently taking her to a secluded area. He has been charged on 11 counts, including rape, sexual penetration, robbery and kidnap, according to the Daily Mail.

The LAPD arrested the acting coach, whose bail was posted at $2.6 million. The girl had apparently approached him for acting classes in 2008. He had taught the girl between April 2008 and March 2009 at the coaching school he runs with his partner Alice Carter. The website for the acting school has since been taken down.

A statement regarding Thor’s arrest reads: “After one of the consultations, suspect Thor drove her to a secluded area in Agoura Hills and sexually assaulted her. The victim was 13 years old at the time of the sexual assault.”

Thor’s Wikipedia credits him with coaching a large numer of celebrities including Madonna, Christina Applegate, Faye Dunaway, Gwen Stefani, Helen Hunt, Gerard Butler, Wentworth Miller, Sylvester Stallone and Cameron Diaz.

Before it was taken down, his coaching website explained that he had been teaching people how to act for 20 years. His acting school offered classes for budding teen actors. The youth course was described: “We work on every level of material with our young people while being careful to stay within the boundaries that are a natural extension of our student’s age range. The Teen Class uses scenes from film and television and includes scenes from popular networks but to be completely focused on material from these popular network would limit the young actor. The Carter Thor Studio Teen Class keeps its class sizes tight and person. Each young actor is attended to as an individual, but each member of the Teen Class is welcome to attend all the Studio events and special guests.”

Despite efforts being made to contact his acting studio no comments have been made from Thor's team.
