Film her naked in front of a green screen, then superimpose that over a background shot of the church.
 
2014-08-25 08:10:52 AM  
Forgot to mention:  Actually film the scene on location with her fully clothed.  So as not to alert the bluenoses.

This. GOT already does a huge amount of stuff with CGI and greenscreen, why are they even debating how to do it?

Because they want the free publicity from causing a row by asking.

I doubt they'd notice such a simple effect. There can hardly be a shot in GOT that hasn't got CGI in it already.

Umm, she's supposed to be completely nude, not just topless. And with hardwood floors.

So, do a virtual set shot.  Caprica did this quite a bit, so did the The Da Vinci Code movies when the church wouldn't let them film.  It's not that hard people.

For a show in the "fantasy" genre, they've got a whole lot of people who can't use their imaginations....

I assume you're referring to the HUGE amounts of nudity in the show. Which is present in the books, so...II fail to see your argument, really.

/80% done with Storm of Swords

Is hardwood floors a euphemism for something I'm not aware of?

The church sounds like the MPAA.  They'd probably be fine with scenes of people getting slaughtered.  But a naked body, "That's blasphemous!"

Often the question used to be whether the carpet matched the drapes.  But then hardwood floors became more de rigueur.

I think it is great. I grow tied of merkins on shows and movies, because it feels like a cheat and I am not a fan of hair down there in the first place.

Sources tell TMZ ... they can't cut the scene because it's crucial to the story line

It's always crucial to the story line.

Hollywood starlet, filming a topless scene while she makes toast? Crucial to the story line.
Famous milf, wanting to boost her career with a topless scene? Crucial to the story line.
Foreign actress, trying to break into the U.S. market with a topless scene as she brushes her hair? Crucial to the story line.

/God bless you, story lines.

Well, the ladies no more want to show explicit views of their nether regions than men do.  How many peeners have you seen in mainstream films?  We can count, what, 2-3 actresses who showed up on-screen without merkins...not a lot.  Interestgingly enough, Tonks was rockin the "hardwood floors" in her nude scene back in season 1 (or was it 2?) although with low lighting you couldn't see much.  Funny thing is, she thought it was silly for a "wild woman" to be shaved.

It might actually be justifiable because of lice or the like. I always think it's weird that the medieval babes don't have hairy legs and pits in TV and movies though.

She's Tonks in the Harry Potter series.  Her first role that most people recognize her from.

Ahh, yeah I never got into Harry Potter, and though I've picked up A LOT about it just by cultural osmosis, I'd never heard of the character Tonks.

Scarlett is a peach. Like when you eat a peach that is so ripe you can push your thumb through the skin. The juice runs down your chin and drips onto your chest, and the place in between your fingers gets so sticky you have trouble separating them. The next day, even after you wash your hands, you can still smell the sweet juice on your skin and, if no one is watching, you lick your fingers and the memory of that sweet fruit on your tongue floods back. Scarlett is like that.

But in a consensual and respectful manner.

I also agree with the lack of male nudity. My thoughts are that I want to see it or just don't show that area at all. It is just not pretty to see a ton of hair down there so for me it takes away from the beauty.

I guess the light was too low, because I didn't even notice Tonks or don't recall.

I prefer the salty, savory juice instead of the sweet. But to each his own.
