HBO’s “Game of Thrones” has run into a problem with a crucial scene that involves Queen Cersei Lannister, played by Lena Headey, walking out of a church while naked, reports TMZ.com.
The problem is that a local film commission has denied the producers a permit because of a policy by the local Croatian church, the Church of St. Nicholas, according to the report.
“The scene calls for Cersei — played by Lena Headey — to walk out of a church and onto the streets of King’s Landing in the buff. The scene is supposed to be shot in Dubrovnik, Croatia, where the church has a lot of power and a rigid policy against public displays of sexuality,” TMZ reports.
The drama series reportedly can’t cut the scene because it’s a crucial moment in the book series on which the HBO program is based. That scene focuses on a punishment handed to Cersei, with the queen forced to shave her head and walk through King’s Landing while naked.
