During her appearance on the BBC’s “Sunday Morning” program, actress Émilia Clarke, famous for her role as Daenerys Targaryen, opened up about her two ruptured aneurysms in 2011 and 2013. This phenomenon occurs when there is an abnormal dilation of the wall of an artery, which creates a small pocket of blood and can result in a stroke. The now 35-year-old actress revealed that she had “fear of dying“, but now considers herself very lucky.”It’s remarkable that I can still speak, even articulate, and live my life completely normally without any repercussions. I am one of the very, very, very small minority of people who survived this“, she recalls.

Sequelae

However, the star of the film “Before You” explains that his accidents left him with serious consequences. “There are a lot of things missing“, she says in a wry tone. Then she continues, “I’m missing quite a bit of brain capacity from a CT scan. Which always makes me laugh… Strokes, basically, as soon as part of your brain doesn’t get blood for a second, it’s gone. So the blood finds a different path to travel, but so the little that’s missing is gone.”

Both of his incidents happened during the filming of Game of Thrones,”it was the most excruciating pain, huge vomiting, i was trying to regain consciousness“. She also confides that her role in the series has particularly helped her overcome what she describes as the worst trials of her life.

From speaking out to creating your association
