She further presented her script as proof that the Prophet Muhammed had not been explicitly named in her script. Instead his lines had been attributed to a character named "George", who was also referred to as "Master George".

The actress says she called the director to complain, but that he had remained defiant. "He told me to tell the media that he was tired of Muslims killing innocent people", she said.
