LOS ANGELES — Gay adult performer Tim Dax is addressing the media over his role in "The Innocence of Muslims," the anti-Islamic YouTube movie-clip said to have provoked the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Libya that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead on Sept 11.

In interviews with NBCLA.com and gay blog Joe.My.God.com, Dax explained that he and his "Innocence of Muslims" cast mates were mislead about the film's plot and were completely unaware of producer Sam Bacile's — now identified by Federal authorities as convicted con-man and Coptic Christian Nakoula Basseley Nakoula — anti-Islamic agenda.

"I can tell you I auditioned for a movie called 'Desert Storm' that was about ancient warriors," Dax told Joe.My.God. "My character was called Sampson on the paper, with a few lines I got each day upon arriving on set. We never saw a full script or any lines after the day we shot them.

"Many questions were asked regarding absurdity of lines and situations. Sam the producer — who I believed to be, but not certain, Egyptian — his reply would always [be] to work with what we were given as he wrote the script. The clip that I saw part of today for the first time is questionable as to being my voice. The voice-over work is dubious at best."

"The Innocence of Muslims" has enraged Islamic radicals for its depiction of the Muslim prophet Muhammad as a hypersexual child molester.

The film was shot in Los Angeles in August 2011 under the title "Desert Warriors." The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports that Media for Christ, a Christian non-profit group located in Duarte, Calif., applied for and obtained the filming permits from FILMLA . The group, however, denies funding the project.

Dax, who performed in Titan Media's "Folsom Undercover," feels heartbroken over the events that have transpired since "The Innocence of Muslims" clip was uploaded to YouTube.com.

"I've made peace with myself," he told NBCLA. "I'm not responsible for anyone's death. I'm an actor in a movie that is make believe, and a bad movie at that. I'm sorry; that's what I want to say. I feel very sorry for the lives lost and the violence that continues, but it's a movie that was shot in Hollywood... and I'm an actor."
