Game Of Thrones is notorious for its gratuitous nudity, but it looks like the scene causing the most trouble will be a nude scene that's actually crucial to the plot!
In the upcoming fifth season, Cersei Lannister is forced by church elders to strip and walk the streets of King's Landing as penance for a crime.
But the production is getting friction from an unexpected source - the real church they use to film in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
Though actress Lena Headey is VERY comfortable getting naked (you can see her body in almost her entire body of work), it seems the Church Of St. Nicholas is just not willing to give its permission for the scene.
Because it's integral to the plot, the walk of shame will be very difficult to excise from the episode. So what can the filmmakers do?
Good question. And until they figure out an answer, production is at a bit of an impasse…
