Lena Headey used a body double to film the Cersei's nude scene on the season five finale of Game Of Thrones.
'Game of Thrones' actress Lena Headey employed a body double for the famous walk of shame on season five finale.
The scene was made possible by superimposing Lena's head onto her body double, through the help of computer graphics.
During the epic finale, 'Mother’s Mercy,' Cersei was forced to confess sleeping with her cousin to the High Sparrow. To atone for these sins, she was forced to walk naked in public.
Speaking on the walk of shame, the actress stated that no one deserves such mediaeval treatment.
" don’t think anyone deserves that treatment,” Lena said.
“She’s been beaten and starved and humiliated. She thinks when she comes out and confesses that this is it—even when she’s on her knees, she’s partly lying. She thinks she’s good to go. She has no idea what’s coming when she walks out to the steps, or that they’re going to shave her hair off like Aslan.” - Lena added.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the scene took three days to shoot with Lena and her body double acting out the moments over and over.
Game of Thrones has already been renewed for Season 6, which will hit the schedule in 2016.
