“Game of Thrones” is not accustomed to holding back the blood, guts, gore and occasional skin flashy scenes, but it seems there were some hiccups with Cersei’s nude scene for the upcoming fifth season. Lena Headey who portrays the iconic character, will strut her stuff in the nude from a church and onto the streets of King’s Landing. The Croatian film commission was not impressed with the plans to see the actress walk around in her birthday suit due to their strict policy against public displays of sexuality.
The film commissioners did however agree to let the show’s producers film the scene on the streets of Dubrovik as long as Headey doesn’t film it at the church. The pivotal scene is now set to begin on a fake church set.
According to TMZ:
“By order of the Croatian film commission, Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) now has the green light to walk the streets of Dubrovik in the nude as long as she never sets foot in a church.”
“Church of St. Nicholas officials proclaimed she could not bare her breasts on their property where the highly anticipated scene was to be filmed.”
This marks the second time Headey will appear onscreen without any clothes on, she previously bared all for Zack Snyder’s “300”.
Just for kicks, here is a video clip with Lena Headey and Jimmy Kimmel talking smack, “Game of Thrones” style!
