ELIZA Dushku has accused a stunt co-ordinator of molesting her while filming when she was 12.
In a lengthy Facebook post, the actress, who played Faith in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, claimed a co-worker on set established a rapport with her parents before sexually abusing her while they worked together on the 1994 film.
She says the then-36-year-old stunt coordinator got her into his hotel room by telling her parents he was going to let her swim in the hotel pool.
"She said, 'Look, Eliza has a big crush on you, she is always asking me, 'Oh, I bet Joel is dating all the women, ' 'I bet Joel is screwing a lot of women, ' so I said then we have to be careful with this one", he told Us. Duskhu alleges that Kramer pulled her onto his lap on the taxi ride home, but grew "cold" in the encounters that followed.
"On a daily basis he rigged wires and harnesses on my 12-year-old body". My life was literally in his hands: he hung me in the open air, from a tower crane, atop an office tower, 25+ stories high. "He was supposed to be my protector, he was my abuser", Dushku writes.
Dushku said that she's coming forward with her story years later thanks to the victims who have spoken out amid the accusations of sexual misconduct that have rocked Hollywood.

'Sharing these words, at long last getting my abuser out freely by name, brings the begin of another quiet'.
"These are outlandish, manipulated lies", Kramer told Deadline on Saturday.
In an announcement posted on her Facebook page, Eliza composed: 'I recall distinctively how he deliberately drew the shades and turned down the lights; how he wrenched up the cooling to what had a craving for solidifying levels, where precisely he put me on one of the two inn room beds. I am sick to my stomach about it. I like to think of myself as a tough Boston chick, in many ways I suppose not unlike Faith, Missy, or Echo. This is all lies. He said they "treated Eliza liked family" and he doesn't understand why she would lie about him now after all of these years. "I never molested this young woman, ever". How does a guy like me fight against something like this? ET has reached out to Kramer's rep for comment.
"She is painting me out to be a monster which I am not", he continued. True Lies costar Jamie Lee Curtis tells People she didn't know about the incident, which she calls "very sad and disturbing".
"I learned recently that in fact he still works at the top of the industry", she wrote.
