LOS ANGELES (AP) - An actress who appears in the anti-Muslim film trailer that has sparked outrage throughout the Muslim has filed a fraud and slander suit against the film's maker. And Cindy Lee Garcia's lawsuit asked a judge to order YouTube to take down the clip.

Garcia's suit claims she was duped by Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the man behind "Innocence of Muslims." He's been forced into hiding since the film's 14-minute trailer rose to prominence.

Garcia's complaint says she was unaware of the film's anti-Muslim content and the pages of the script she received had no mention of the prophet Muhammad, religion or sexual content. According to a lawsuit Garcia responded to an ad and thought she was appearing in an ancient Egyptian adventure film called "Desert Warriors." She alleges dialogue in the amateurish film was later dubbed to include anti-Islamic messages.
