Emilia Clarke Reveals She Survived Two Life-Threatening Brain Aneurysms

Emilia Clarke stars as "Daenerys Targaryen" on Game of Thrones.

In a recent piece she wrote for 'The New Yorker', actress Emilia Clarke revealed that she faced not one, but two life-and-death situations while filming seasons one and two of Game of Thrones.

After finishing the first season of Game of Thrones’ Clarke became violently ill during a workout session. She was rushed to the hospital where a brain scan revealed a subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Clarke was lucky, as a third of patients actually die almost immediately from a SAH.

Emilia Clarke: "If I was to live (...), I would have to have urgent surgery."
