According to both actors and confirmed by excerpts of the script obtained by ABC News, the name Mohammed is never mentioned. Instead, the character is called "Master George," a name that like Mohammed has three syllables, which seems to have dubbing easier.

Similarly, though Jews and Christians are mentioned by name in the script, it also includes the invented word "Bossaic." It was later replaced with "Islamic."

Garcia, who played the role of a mother turning her child over to "George," the Mohammed stand-in, delivered a line in the script that said, "Is your God a child molester?" She said there was a brief discussion on set about the question, but delivered the line anyway. In the finished version, the line was overdubbed to say, "Is your Mohammed a child molester?"

Garcia described herself as a Christian, but said she did not believe cast members were selected for their religious beliefs.

"I was just there to do a movie," she told ABC News. "Now people are dead. It's not my fault."
