Game Of Thrones bosses have been given permission to shoot Lena Headey's topless scene in Croatia as long as the actress stays away from a local church.

Producers of the hit fantasy series were told this week that their plans to film a racy scene in Dubrovnik showing Headey's character walking out of the Church of Saint Nicholas nude had been rejected by local officials.

Now they have been informed they are welcomed to shoot Headey, as her conniving character Cersei Lannister, topless as long as she does not enter the church, according to TMZ.com.

The scene will be included in the show's forthcoming season five, which is expected to premiere in the US next April.
