Actress Emilia Clarke reveals she no longer take selfies with fans and here is her reason

English actress, Emilia Clarke has revealed she no longer takes selfies with fans after one of them insisted she take a photo with him during a panic attack.

The 33-year-old revealed this while speaking to Jessie Ware on her podcast Table Manners, where she disclosed that she suffers from the anxiety- induced attacks. 

Speaking about the incident, a fan actually stopped her and insisted on getting a snap with her, despite seeing her in tears as she was going through a panic attack, bought on by exhaustion at that moment. 

On the podcast, Emilia told Jessie: '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 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,' the actress added. She went on to say that this was when a fan thought it was the perfect opportunity to ask her for a selfie. 

Because of that experience, the Last Christmas actress has banned fans from asking for selfies with her, but she will grant them an autograph in place of a selfie.

'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."

She went on to say that she now asks if she can give fans an autographs instead. She said: 'When you do that, you have to have an interaction with that person, as opposed to someone just going, "Give us a selfie, goodbye."

Instead she said it turns into: '"What's your name? Who am I making it out to?" Then you have a chat and you're actually having a truthful human-to-human thing, as opposed to it being this other thing that probably isn't nice for them and isn't nice to you.'
