GAME OF THRONES 5 - CERSEI LANNISTER DID NOT ACTUALLY WALK NAKED...

Just like some people who feel they can never be hit by a bug of a series...I once called the bluff about sitting to watch the Game of Thrones but I got stuck from the very beginning. What exactly makes this drama series so unique or interesting that every one keeps talking about it and by everyone, I mean deeply rooted fans of drama...because there are people who just stare and get carried away with the whole thing...there are also those who skip, skip and skip their way to the end...

Back to the matter...It is not too late to repent of your ''theatric sins'' and flow with the season, enjoy a good series and learn one  or two things about life...you will be marveled at the level of dialogue being exchanged when you watch most Hollywood series...ok! Well, for the true fellowship members who are following in body and soul..the season finale just ended and am sure many are still talking about the episode..I have no words to describe it because my mouth was left open for seconds...

Before I actually talk about the Koko of the matter...there were surprises...real shocking surprises; such as the brutal killing of Jon Snow, one of my favorite characters of the series...Sansa Stark has also escaped and I just hope and pray she makes it far out of that land....

Now, after watching the thrilling episode where Cersei had to go through the confession to the high sparrow and cleansing...I had to go online and find out more interesting details and what to expect in 2016 but to my surprise, a body double was used for her walk...According to CinemaBlend, Actress Lena Headey actually employed a body double for her famous walk.


According to reports, Lena has actually revealed well enough for jobs like 300, Aberdeen and Fair Game and so what would have been different about this all important walk which actually took 3 days to shoot..(.In Nollywood, that is like an entire production period for some movies...I swear.) Apparently, she was already pregnant with a baby girl as at October last year when it was being shot.
There were challenges while planning to shoot in Croatia as permissions were given to film outside but for the church scene, It took $200,000, a body double standing in for her, phones had to be confiscated.

Reports further stated that It would have been weird for her to walk amongst extras who would refer to her character as ''whore'' and ''brother fucker''. Basically, she was actually on set but did more of facial reactions...Do you now see why these guys are the ''baddest'' of them all...I totally believed that scene and the good news is that the series has been renewed for a new season in 2016.

One lesson...the business of make-believe must be made to be believed...
