Fans are upset that Lena Headey used a body double to shoot Cersei’s Walk of Shame stark naked after comparing her body to 2007’s 300
It was a scene of utmost humiliation and terror as the High Sparrow made Cersei strip down to her flesh, shone all her hair and walk through the streets to the castle where she could meet her son Tommen. While it was a catastrophizing scene that was a part of the thrill filled finale.

Lena Headey herself quoted that "It's not hard when people are screaming at you and you look like s**t and you're being f**king humiliated to figure out how that would feel, there's a part of you that's f**king terrified."
Author George RR Martin revealed that King Edward IV's wife Jane Shore suffered a similar horror after his death in the 1400s and that was what the scene was based on.
The fans were paying much more intent attention on the Walk of Shame or Walk of Atonement. A Reddit strip took generation when it became clear that face had a little blurriness and after a little investigation, it was found that it was actually a body double who did the Walk instead of Lena Headey.
Creators have revealed that Lena stayed on set for three days to shoot the scene and she was pregnant at the time. Lena herself admitted that her extensive range of body tattoos made it extremely difficult for the makeup department to cover them all up.
Lena and Hannah Waddington, who played the septa chanting "Shame!" during Cersei's walk both admired Lena’s body double to have done the walk with such extreme circumstances. Lena has herself acknowledged that the scene was done by a body double and she is not hiding it.
The fans are upset that Lena had not done the scene herself. They also compared the body to Lena’s body in 2007’s 300 and found difference saying that she might have used a body double all along.
No matter how hard the scene might be, the fans expect the actors to do it and that’s why Emilia Clarke refused to do them at one point so should Lena consider it too or is her bare all scene days are behind her.
Cersei's scene was insanely shot & put together. The CGI over the body double looked awkward a/f though. Lena = Emmy.— Harry (@HarryHasapis) June 16, 2015
