Production Of ‘Game Of Thrones’ Just Hit A MAJOR Setback Because This One Scene Has Too Much Nudity

Hey guys, there’s aboutta be spoilers in this so if you’re one of those people that has a goddamn stroke every time someone tells you something about the plot that you didn’t know already, get the fuck on outta here.

However, if you’re like me and couldn’t give two shits about having things spoiled because your memory sucks and the chances of forgetting it within 45 minutes are right around 99.999%, carry on.

On this coming season of Game of Thrones Cersei is going to make a “walk of penance” in which she has to walk from a church in King’s Landing back to the castle…naked. I won’t tell you why she has to do it, but obviously it wasn’t exactly on her bucket list. However, the church that they’re shooting the scene at isn’t havin’ it.

The Game Of Thrones production team have reportedly been prohibited from shooting a crucial topless scene at its planned location in Croatian capital Dubrovnik.

Filming is currently well underway for the forthcoming fifth series of the hit HBO show, but a scene that required central character Cersei Lannister, played by Lena Headey, to leave a church walk through the streets of King’s Landing in the nude has been rejected by the city’s Church of St. Nicholas.

Billed as Cersei’s ‘walk of penance,’ the sequence was to be filmed in the Stradun street between Dubrovnik Cathedral and the Sponza Palace.

But according to TMZ, the local film commission will not grant permission for the racy scene to be shot in Dubrovnik, portions of which double as the fictional citadel.

It’s understood that the church adopts a tough stance against open acts of sexuality, meaning the production team must find an alternative location…
Despite setbacks the scene will remain very much a part of the shooting script because, according to TMZ, it has a pivotal place within the storyline and strong relevance to the original source material…
