Cape Town – Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has banned fans from taking selfies with her.

This comes after a fan approached the actress while she was having a panic attack at an airport.

The 33-year-old talked about the incident during an interview with singer Jessie Ware on her podcast Table Manners.

The Last Christmas actress said she was walking through the airport when she believes she had a panic attack brought on by exhaustion.

"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. 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.'"

She went on say that she while she will no longer be taking photos with fans, she will be giving autographs.
