Game of Thrones nude scene banned
Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister

Nudity may be normal in King's Landing, but one Game of Thrones actress has reportedly been banned from getting her cans out to film on location.

Producers of the hit US TV series have been prohibited from filming a pivotal topless scene at its planned location in Dubrovnik, Croatia, according to TMZ.

The Hollywood gossip magazine says the program's crew applied to the local film commission to shoot the racy scene in which Cersei Lannister, played by Lena Headey, undertakes a "walk of penance" through the streets of King's Landing.

But the request was reportedly rejected because the city's Church of St Nicholas has a hardline stance against public displays of sexuality.

It's understood the iconic scene, from George R.R. Martin's fifth novel A Dance With Dragons, will still be shot somewhere else because of its importance to the storyline.

Filming is well under way for the fifth series of Game of Thrones, which will air in April 2015, with the majority having already been completed in Northern Ireland.

Its last two seasons do not have a release date and will only be filmed once Martin has written his final novels, The Winds Of Winter and A Dream Of Spring.
