LOS ANGELES, Calif. (CNN) -- There are still many questions about the movie that is considered the catalyst for protests breaking out all across the Middle East. The cast and crew have issued a statement saying they were "grossly misled" about how the film would turn out.
CNN's Miguel Marquez interviewed an actress who appeared in the film. She was okay being shown on camera, but she asked not to be identified by name, citing safety concerns.
She responded to a generic casting call for what was billed as an action adventure film set 2,000 years ago. A low budget affair called, at the time, Desert Warriors. Marquez begins, "You find yourself in the middle of an international..." and the actress says, "Nightmare. That's what I find myself in the middle of. Of a world that I've prayed for. For god to help. Killing is never right."
In her portion of the script the prophet Mohammed character was called George who was referred to during filming as either Master George or Father Master, never Mohammed. She was paid 500 dollars for a few days work. But she says the writer/producer, Sam Bassil, lied about the film's content. The actress says, "I think it's unfair. I think it's very unfair. And I'm very sorry for that man and his family and everyone else that was hurt."
She even phoned Bassil whom she said remains defiant. She says, "He said tell the media that I'm tired of the Muslims killing innocent people."
Steve Klein consulted on the film. Marquez says, "The motivation was to spark some change within Islam." Klein responds, "Only of these few fractions, fractions of fraction of these man if we can somehow open up the eyes."
She doesn't want her name used because she said her family is fearful, but she isn't. Marquez asks, "What's your overriding emotion right now? Is fear anger?" She responds, "Anger and hurt. I'm not afraid. My husband is afraid for me. I'm not. I'm pretty pissed."
This woman also apologized to Muslims for what was portrayed on the film and says if she knew what it was really about she never would have made it.
