Game Of Thrones Actress Emilia Clarke

Game Of Thrones Actress Emilia Clarke shared her story of suffering two brain aneurysms in an article she wrote for the New York Times.

The actress who is known for her role as Daenerys Targarye in the HBO series revealed that she suffered on in 2011 after filming, and another in 2013 after the third season had just finished.

The 32 year old shared the details of the moment she experience the first aneurysm.

She wrote about the terrifying ordeal that occurred whilst she was working out in a gym in North London.

She wrote, "I was so fatigued that I could barely put on my sneakers. When I started my workout, I had to force myself through the first few exercises,"

The actress explained how the pain quickly escalated, "Then my trainer had me get into the plank position, and I immediately felt as though an elastic band were squeezing my brain. I tried to ignore the pain and push through it, but I just couldn’t."

Clarke went on to say how she eventually ended up in the locker room "violently, voluminously ill."

Diagnosis

Due to this, she a described it as a fear that she had never experienced, she went onto reveal that she was diagnosed with a subarachnoid hemorrhage.

The condition can be fatal and it would not be the last experience Emilia would have with it.

In 2013 after wrapping up filming for Game of Thrones Season 3 the actress suffered her second aneurysm and was warned by doctors that the previously diagnosed growth on her brain had doubled in size.

Finally, Clarke expressed that she had to prepare for a long recovery, after she was informed she would invasive surgery through the skull to reach the growth.

"I emerged from the operation with a drain coming out of my head. Bits of my skull had been replaced by titanium," she wrote.

SameYou

As a result the actress has dedicated her time off from acting to helping others who have suffered brain injuries though a charity she helped to create called SameYou.
