'Game of Thrones' nude scene featuring Lena Headey's Cersei Lannister causing delays in production

By Gina DiFalco,

Production for the new season of HBO’s Game of Thrones might be delayed due to Lena Headey’s nude scene.

Although the show is known for its sex scenes, the delay is due to a permit they need to obtain in Dubrovnik, Croatia, where the show is being shot.

The scene portrays Heady's character, Cersei Lannister, walking outside of the Church of St. Nicholas naked, which is a big storyline from the book and can’t be changed. The problem is the church has a strict policy against nudity and displays of sexuality and told the film commission not to give them permits.

According to TMZ, a resolution still hasn’t been reached yet, which could cause a delay.

Despite the constant nudity on the show, this would be Headey’s first time baring it all for the show.

Cinema Blend reports one of the reasons Headey hasn’t appeared nude in the show yet is to put more emphasis on this scene – which just goes to show how important it is to the story.
