Emilia Clarke appeared in high spirits as she celebrated her birthday by jumping out of a plane.

The actress, known for playing Daenerys Targaryen in Game Of Thrones, marked her 34th birthday by braving a skydive at an airfield in Northamptonshire.

Sharing the aftermath on her social media, Emilia unveiled a series of entertaining facial expressions in photographs taken after her jump.

The Me Before You actress also noted that the birthday experience was the most 'exhilarating experience of her life'.

In the snaps, Emilia was dressed in a professional skydiving suit and was strapped into a harness with her parachute trailing behind.

At the time, the MirrorOnline reached out to the pair's representatives for comment.
