Jasmin Maeder has appeared in many racy films - including 'Perverse Games with Teeny Cleopatra' - since she was 18 and donned the porn star name Cleopatra.

But now, the 29-year-old is running for the extreme right Swiss Nationalist Party in Zurich.

The former starlet claims her past is ''irrelevant'' and now she wants to ''change something in Switzerland''.

Two of the aims of the party is to protect Swiss youth from the evils of drugs and porn.

A former co-star said: ''Maybe she thought she looked similar to the Egyptian queen because of her skin colour. At that time, she looked much darker than today.''
