40 Celebrities Who Refuse To Do Nude Scenes or Pose Naked
Who could forget Cersei Lannister’s walk of shame? One of the most haunting moments in Game of Thrones‘s long and dramatic history was acted by Lena Headey from the neck-up. The actress refused to appear naked (unlike basically all of the other cast members), instead using a body double for the gut-wrenching scene. Lena’s decision wasn’t aesthetic, it was for the good of the character.
“Things really affect me. And the thought of being naked for three days and trying to contain her in the way she would be I think I would feel very angry. I didn’t want to be angry. I don’t think Cersei would be angry. I did what I thought she would do, emotionally,” she said to Entertainment Weekly. “I didn’t phone it in; I was actually there for three days with Rebecca.”
