Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is one of the bravest and most dedicated actresses in the filmmaking industry. She went through suffering two life-threatening brain aneurysms while she was filming for Game of Thrones, but she kept going on. The intense heat didn’t stop her, the long hours of work didn’t deter her. After going through those harrowing experiences, she is grateful to be alive, and lives her life to the fullest. She recently opened up about how she felt after the two brain aneurysms.

Clarke appeared on BBC One’s Sunday Morning quite recently and revealed, “The amount of my brain that is no longer usable – it’s remarkable that I am able to speak, sometimes articulately, and live my life completely normally with absolutely no repercussions. I am in the really, really, really small minority of people that can survive that.”

Referring to her brain scans, Clarke said, “There’s quite a bit missing! Which always makes me laugh. Because strokes, basically, as soon as any part of your brain doesn’t get blood for a second, it’s gone. And so the blood finds a different route to get around but then whatever bit it’s missing is therefore gone.”

After the aneurysms, Clarke suffered from aphasia, at one point being unable to recall her own name. Clarke’s memory has luckily not been affected long-term, and she was able to complete the decade-long run of Game of Thrones and recently appeared on stage in The Seagull.

Hopefully, Clarke has recovered completely from the aneurysms and it won’t affect her later in life. Send your well wishes in the comments below!
