Emilia Clarke Shares Her Story About Surviving Two Brain Aneurysms.
Emilia Clarke opened up about her experiences with brain aneurysms and expressed gratitude for being able to recover from the loss of “quite some” of the organ.
Clarke spoke out about her health problems during a Sunday Morning interview with BBC Sunday Morning. She was promoting her performance of Anton Chekhov’s “The Seagull” at the Harold Pinter Theatre. This play marks Clarke’s West End debut.
Clarke stated, “It was the worst pain.” “It was extremely helpful to have ‘Game of Thrones” sweep me up, and give me that purpose.”
Two life-threatening brain aneurysms occurred while Clarke was working on the HBO series. The first happened in 2011 and the second in 2013. Both of these medical emergencies required long recovery periods. Clarke was the first to openly discuss her difficult situation in 2019. She assured that she is now fully recovered.
