Lena Headey’s Cersei Lannister has mostly stayed above the fray. She’s wielded power in far different, far less overtly sexual ways, but on the upcoming season, fans will finally get to see the vindictive, villainous and weirdly enchanting mother strip down, at least if the Croatian authorities get their acts together.
The problem is one of permits and the local church. Game Of Thrones is currently shooting in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Producers have already gotten permission and the necessary permits to shoot everything they need, except for one scene that involves Cersei Lannister getting naked outside. The rest of the world might be dying to see that, but the local and extremely powerful Church Of St. Nicholas is apparently not so excited. According to TMZ, Church Officials told the film commission not to give out the permits, and the film commission listened.
