'Game of Thrones' star Emilia Clarke reveals she survived two life-threatening aneurysms while working on the show

New York - Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke revealed in an op-ed on Thursday that she has had two life-threatening aneurysms, and two brain surgeries, since the show began. Clarke had just finished filming her first season as Daenerys Targaryen, the 'Mother of Dragons', on the HBO fantasy series when she had the first aneurysm in 2011 at age 24 while working out at a London gym.

In her Sunday interview - during which she shared photos from her time in the hospital - the 32-year-old elaborated on her fears revealing that doctors told her a part of her brain died after her second aneurysm.

"So, with the second one there was a bit of my brain that actually died. If a part of your brain doesn't get blood to it for a minute, it will just no longer work… I had that."

Emilia adds that for a very long time she thought the part of her brain that stopped working was the part that enabled her to act.
