Emilia Clarke Doesn't Do Fan Selfies Anymore: 'I Can’t Breathe'

Emilia Clarke is one of the biggest names in Hollywood because she played the Mother of Dragons on Game of Thrones.

Although GOT might be over, that doesn't mean fans will ever forget about her!

Fans just adore her, but there are some people who are too much for her.

Clarke, who recently wrapped up 'Last Christmas' is still in the spotlight doing interviews.

Recently, she was on a podcast where she revealed that she was taking a step back in the fan experience in a certain way.

Emilia Clarke decided she can no longer do fan selfies after a terrible experience with a fan at an airport.

“I was genuinely walking through an airport and I suddenly started having what I can only believe to be a panic attack brought on by complete exhaustion. I was on my own, I was on the phone to my mum saying, ‘I feel like I can’t breathe, I don’t know what’s going on,'” she said.

“‘I’m there and the tears are coming out,”

“I’m crying and crying, this guy’s like, ‘Can I get a selfie?’ And I was like, ‘I can’t breathe, I’m really sorry. Just having a minute.’ It was after a few moments like that where I was like, ‘I don’t know how to do this.’”

But she says that she's totally willing to do autographs, since they allow for her to actually interact with her fans.

“When you do that, you have to have an interaction with that person, as opposed to someone just going, ‘Oi, give us a selfie, goodbye,’”

At least she found a good middle-ground for herself!
