Game of Throne star Emelia Clarke widely recognised as Khaleesi has noted she’s not going to take selfies with fans again.
According to her, she would rather sign autographs instead of selfies.
The popular actress arrived at this decision after she experienced what she termed as ‘Panic Attack’.
Emelia Clarke has noted in a podcast, Table Manners with Jessie Ware that she had an anxiety-induced attack whilst walking through an airport, she could barely breathe and felt completely exhausted.
Yet that was the time a fan approached her, insisting on taking a selfie with her.
‘I was genuinely walking through an airport and I suddenly starting 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 talking to my mum saying, “I feel like I can’t breathe. I don’t know what’s going on”.
‘I’m there and the tears are coming out,’ adding that was the time a fan actually pestered her for selfies.
‘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.”
On the back of this experience, the actress has said she is not going to take selfies with fans anymore because she wants to feel ‘human to human’ relationship with his fans.
‘When you do that, you have to have an interaction with that person, as opposed to someone just going, “Give us a selfie, goodbye.”
