Producers behind Game of Thrones are scrambling to reorganize a shoot for the next series after local officials in Croatia reportedly barred them from filming Lena Headey’s nude scene in a church.
The crew applied to the local film commission in Dubrovnik to shoot a racy scene in which Headey’s character walks out of a church and onto the streets naked, but the request was rejected, according to TMZ.
Editors of the website report church officials are opposed to public displays of sexuality, and since the film commission and church have close ties, producers are now desperately searching for a way around the problem as they are unable to film in their chosen venue.
The scene is reportedly too important to be cut, so the producers are definitely going to find a workaround somehow. SPOILERS AHEAD!!! In the most recent book in the series, A Dance With Dragons, part of the narrative is that Cersei Lannister gets thrown into prison (for spoilery-er details we won’t get into here) and, once released, has to walk naked through King’s Landing as penance.
