Game of Thrones’ Star Emilia Clarke Quietly Suffered Two Brain Aneurysms.


speaking out for the first time about suffering two life-threatening brain aneurysms that left her in so much pain she asked the hospital staff to “just let me die.”

In an essay published in the New Yorker on Thursday, the actress says the first aneurysm happened in 2011 during a workout, right after she wrapped up filming season one of “Game of Thrones.”

“My trainer had me get into the plank position and I immediately felt as though an elastic band were squeezing my brain,” she recalls. “Somehow, almost crawling, I made it to the locker room. I reached the toilet, sank to my knees and proceeded to be violently, voluminously ill. Meanwhile, the pain —shooting, stabbing, constricting pain — was getting worse. At some level, I knew what was happening — my brain was damaged.”

The 32-year-old then describes being rushed to the hospital and the mildly invasive surgery that came next. She had what’s called “endovascular coiling,”  where a catheter is used to reach the aneurysm in the brain. The catheter is passed through the groin up into the artery containing the aneurysm.

Waking up from the surgery, Clarke describes the pain saying it was “unbearable” and she “no idea where I was.” The actress says later she suffered a condition called “aphasia,” which made her forget her name and she went into a “blind panic.”

“My full name is Emilia Isobel Euphemia Rose Clarke, but now I couldn’t remember it. Instead, nonsense words tumbled out of my mouth and I went into a blind panic,” the “GoT” star remembers. “I’d never experienced fear like that — a sense of doom closing in. I could see my life ahead, and it wasn’t worth living. I am an actor; I need to remember my lines. Now I couldn’t recall my name.”

Clarke admitted, she “asked the medical staff to let me die,” because she was so scared she’d never fully recover.

She says season two of “GoT” was her worst. “I didn’t know what [my character] Daenerys was doing. If I am truly being honest, every minute of every day I thought I was going to die.”

Two years later, Clarke went in for an annual brain scan and the doctor informed her they had to “take care” of a second aneurysm. They performed the same procedure as last, but it didn’t take. Doctors were forced to perform another procedure which went directly through her skull.

Clarke describes that recovery as “even more painful than it had been after the first surgery,” adding, “I looked as though I had been through a war more gruesome than any that Daenerys experienced.”

The actress says stayed in the hospital for a month and suffered “panic attacks” because she was “convinced that I wasn’t going to live.”

The actress is happy to say, she “healed beyond my most unreasonable hopes” and is now helping others who have suffered brain aneurysms through a charity called, SameYou.


How terrifying, what an awful experience for a young person - or any age, I guess. Hopefully her health will remain good.

On a personal note, am I the only woman on the planet that has never found Brad Pitt or Leonardo DiCaprio..... hot?
I just have never gotten the big deal about either of them, Or Tom Cruise...

No, I don't find any of them remotely attractive. They all seem girlish to me. Give me a real man like Lee Van Cleef or Burt Lancaster or Howard Keel.....I belong in a different era. Even Bela Lugosi is sexier than those guys.

Chuckle
Let me think... Olde school
Young Clint Eastwood
Errol Flynn...
Gene Kelly

Contemporary
Oh.... Hmmm
They're mostly foreign
Kazuki Kitamura
Takeshi Kaneshiro
I love little Tony Leung
Alex Oloughlin
Jason momoa
Ummm.....
Half the guys in Vikings  Chuckle
OK maybe a third...


I agree with a lot of your taste - I like the Vikings guys too and one of my favorite MANLY MEN....is Toshiro Mifune. And Tatsuya Nakadai And of course....Bruce Lee. Have you ever seen the inspiration for Star Wars called The Hidden Fortress with Mifune? There's a scene when he is escaping on horseback from a captor and he grabs a captive peasant girl, saves her and rides off - one of those scenes when everyone in the theater cheers. You don't see that nowadays.

He seems too innocent to me. I like Sean Bean - that weather-beaten look - even though I know, being Sean Bean, he's gonna die. And I also have a sneaking fondness for the guy that plays Littlefinger. I like that foxy look he has.

And of course........Jason Momoa. Khal Drogo may well be the sexiest character ever on a TV screen. I'm surprised the chips didn't burn out. Do women universally love Jason Momoa - he seems to be in the same category as chocolate.

No.  

Right now top of the list is Tom Ellis (Lucifer Morningstar).  

Travis Fimmel (Ragnar Lothbrok)...a former pretty boy turned rough.

Pretty boys are ok though too...Ryan Reynolds for example.

Beefcakes are out of the question.  So gross.

Some older men are nice to view as well...example...Ian McShane when he played Al Swearengen in Deadwood.  I think that was the perfect age for him looks-wise...younger and now older, not so much.  I'll still watch anything that has him in it even now because he's one of my fave actors.  Right now he's playing Mr Wednesday on American Gods...quite good.

So I'm watching Grindhouse Presents: Death Proof.

This is one messed up, but entertaining movie.
