Emilia Clarke, who starred as Daenerys Targaryen on “Game of Thrones,” was recently interviewed on BBC’s “Sunday Morning” and revealed that parts of her brain are missing after suffering two brain aneurysms.
Emilia suffered brain aneurysms in 2011 and 2013, and she said “there’s quite a bit missing” from her brain.
“Strokes, basically, as soon as any part of your brain doesn’t get blood for a second it’s gone,” she said.
“So the blood finds a different route to get around, but then whatever bit is missing is therefore gone.”
Emilia went on to share how fortunate she is saying, “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.”
Emilia credits “Game of Thrones” giving her purpose.
“It was incredibly helpful to have ‘Game of Thrones’ sweep me up and give me that purpose,” she said.
Emilia is currently starring in the play “The Seagull” in London.
