With controversial scenes brimming with incest, deception, and murder, it only makes sense that Game of Thrones (opens in new tab) would cause a stir off screen as well. The latest drama came from a nude scene that producers wanted to be shot in a Croatian church. As you can imagine, religious authorities were less than thrilled about the prospect of a nude woman traipsing around their house of worship.
The nude woman in question is Cersei Lannister, better known in real life as Lena Headey. The scene would require Cersei (opens in new tab) to wander the streets of Dubrovnik, as well as inside a local church in her birthday suit. But GoT (opens in new tab) producers wouldn't let the church shut down the scandalous scene so easily. The two parties finally came to an agreement, thanks to the Croatian film commission. Cersei will be allowed to walk the streets of Dubrovnik naked, but instead of filming inside the church, those scenes will be filmed in a faux set, instead of the hallowed halls of a church. It seems that not even a man of God can stop Game of Thrones (opens in new tab) from stirring up drama.
