A selfie-snapping with Emilia Clarke — who portrayed Daenerys “Mother of Dragons” Targaryen on “Game of Thrones” for nearly 10 years — would be a pretty fiery Instagram post.
But according to the most recent episode of the “Table Etiquette” podcast with Jessie Ware, the 33-year-old actor doesn’t snap photos with random fans when they spot him in public now.
Emilia Clarke told the podcast’s hosts that instead of a selfie, he asks fans if he can sign some of them.
He explained, “Because as soon as you sign something, you have to have a conversation with that person.” Then you have a chat, and you’re actually talking to a genuine human to human, as it This second thing that is probably not good for them and is not suitable for you is being opposed. “
Emilia Clarke went on to explain that he loves to mingle with people and that he is now just being able to pop into a local shop and chat with someone. One of the things he misses is “the most oblivion about.”
“Then, when someone is asking me for a selfie, I want to be able to provide for them what it is they are after. … They said, when you talk of signing one, So you can really look into their eyes, and there is a proper real human thing.
The actor said he decided to use this tactic after some strange experiences, including a fan asking him to take a selfie with him while he was in the middle of having a panic attack in an airport. Brought from exhaustion. “
“I was telling my mother on the phone, ‘I feel like I can’t breathe, I don’t know what’s going on,'” she explained. “I’m crying and crying, and this guy is like, ‘Can I get a selfie? I was like,’ I can’t breathe, I’m really sorry.”
Instead of taking a fleeting selfie, spending time to sign something has contributed to his mental well-being.
He said, “I signed up for [fame].” I’m just trying to navigate how I [interact with fans] is empty without feeling like my soul because they don’t really want to talk to you.
But apparently, it seems clear that Clarke will make an exception to this rule. Like, say, you’re Stevie Nicks, and you decide to walk up to him and bow to his mid-concert, just to show him how much of a fan you are. Then, sure, it seems like Clarke would happily pose for a picture.
