British actress Emilia Clarke talked about the serious health problems she faced while working on one of the best TV series, Game of Thrones.
“When all my dreams were about to come true I almost lost my mind, then my life. I never publicly talked about this, but now it’s time” Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen in the Game of Thrones TV series has revealed for The New Yorker, the drama she went through right after the finished shooting the first season of the Game of Thrones show.
She was working out at the gym when she started to feel very tired and blacked out. Emilia Clarke woke up at the hospital. She was 24 years old when she was diagnosed with subarachnoid hemorrhage, a serious condition caused by bleeding in the space between the brain and the surrounding membrane.
After three hours on the operating system, Emilia Clarke woke up in pain and aphasia. ” My full name is Emilia Isobel Euphemia Rose Clarke but i couldn’t remember it. However i talked nonsense” Emilia Clarke says. This lack of control made her wish to take of our life and she even asked the doctors to help. But just a few days later Emilia was feeling better and left the hospital, returning to film the second season of Game of Thrones.
To be able to give interviews to promote the Game of Thrones show she had to constantly take morphine and when she went to the doctor again to be checked up she learned that her aneurysm doubled its size and that the chances of survival are slim if she doesn’t have surgery. The surgery failed so, shortly after, she needed a third intervention.
“This time they had to reach my brain through the traditional way – to split by head open” Emilia Clarke says, who then spent one month in the hospital.
Today, Emilia Clarke says she’s cured and that she’s one of the few lucky people who survived such a condition, mostly because she had received excellent medical care. Emilia Clarke also started a charity for people who are recovering from neurological conditions.
Next month the final season of the TV series that made her famous will debut. Emilia Clarke says that she’s very happy to be here to see the end of the Game of Thrones story and the beginning of what’s coming next.
