WHOA! This is a LOT of money! But, really, when you're one of the most popular shows on television, you can afford this type of thing!
Game of Thrones filmed a pretty pivotal scene the other day that involved Lena Headey being completely nude…
There were SOME pictures from the set that leaked, but none of her fully naked!

Well, now we know the reason why!
HBO shelled out $50,000 PER DAY for the four day shoot to prevent ANYONE from snapping a pic!
So, what was involved in that hefty price tag?
Well, they (obviously) banned all cell phones, hired 200 MORE security guards to protect the set AND they had to pay the local shop owners to shut down their shops and leave the area for good!
The other step they took was that there were only FOUR trusted crew members present for the ACTUAL filming.
Oh, and they signed confidentiality agreements that included a $250,000 fine if anyone broke the contract!
Some pretty serious stuff! But can you REALLY put a price tag on a spoiler-free shoot?
