Game Of Thrones Actress Emilia Clarke Says ‘Part Of Her Brain Died’ After Suffering Two Aneurysms

Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke has opened up on the life-changing brain aneurysms that severely damaged part of her brain. Emilia told CBS Sunday Morning: “With the second one, there was a bit of my brain that actually died. If part of your brain doesn’t get blood to it for a minute, it will just no longer work. It’s like you short circuit. So I had that.”

She continued: “There was a deep paranoia. I was like, ‘What if something has short-circuited in my brain and I can’t act anymore?’ I mean, literally, it’s been my reason for living for a very long time.”
