Two more women have accused stunt coordinator Joel Kramer of sexual assault following similar allegations from actress Eliza Dushku.
Stunt woman Laura Albert told Deadline that she brought her 15-year-old sister and her sister’s friend, 16, to the set of “Virus” in early 1997.
In a written statement, Albert claimed that Kramer “had lured the girls to go swimming at the pool in his hotel” after a day on set and go-karting after production ended.
Albert, who said she heard the allegations a month later, claimed that Kramer then “pulled his d–k out and said, ‘You cannot handle this.’”
Her sister allegedly left, but the 16-year-old friend reportedly stayed and had sex with Kramer, who was 39 at the time.
The age of consent in North Carolina, where “Virus” was filmed, is 16.
Kramer denied inviting the two women to the pool, saying that they showed up on their own.
He also told Deadline that the 16-year-old went to his hotel room uninvited.
“She came in and we fooled around but no intercourse. She left about 1/2 hour later. I honestly did not know she was 17. Tattoos, and yes, pretty,” he said in a written statement.
“When I found out I was devastated. I also checked with the local laws and found out 16 was the consensual age. It bothered me for years. Yes all was consensual.”

Another stunt woman claims that Kramer forced her to perform oral sex on him in the late 1970s or early ‘80s.
“When I got into Joel’s vehicle, instead of driving me to the other place, he drove us up into the hills on the south side of Ventura Boulevard into a quiet residential area. He pulled his vehicle over, unzipped his pants, pulled out his penis,” the unnamed woman told Deadline.
“He grabbed me by the back of my head and forced my face down onto his penis and came in my mouth. He then released my head and cleaned himself up. I must have as well. I really don’t remember if he gave me tissues. I cannot remember if words were exchanged of any type, but he did drive me to the other place, where the group had gone.”
Kramer called the allegations a “fabrication” and claimed there was a “witch hunt” against him.
The accusations come days after Dushku claimed that Kramer sexually assaulted her on the set of “True Lies” when she was 12 years old.
Jamie Lee Curtis, who starred in both “True Lies” and “Virus,” said Dushku had shared the same allegations about the stuntman several years ago.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, who also starred in “True Lies,” said Monday night that he was “shocked and saddened” by Dushku’s claims.
“I am also proud of her — beyond being a great talent and an amazing woman, she is so courageous,” he tweeted.
