Emilia Clarke, private diva de Game of thrones, broke his silence about his state of health. The 35-year-old Briton suffered two brain aneurysms in 2011 and 2013, following which she underwent an operation. Today you have the serenity and the courage to share your experience.
According to medical forecasts and statistics, after such an operation he should have lost the use of speech. It is very rare – explained the artist – that there is no physical consequence.
He told the program about it Sunday Morning of BBC1 to promote his West End stage debut with The seagull, of which he shared a photo after a long absence from Instagram (the account boasts 27 million followers) and which debuted in London on July 6th. During the interview she revealed: «(The disease) allows you to change your perspective. There’s a part of my brain that doesn’t work anymore… a piece is missing, which always makes me laugh when I think about it. Basically if blood doesn’t reach the brain for a second to that area you say goodbye. Sure, blood finds another way around the situation but what’s lost is lost.
At one point I said to myself: “This is you now. And this is the brain you have left.” There really is no point in endlessly brooding over what might have been.
However, I can handle two and a half hours of show every night without missing a single line. I’ve always had a good memorywhich is the only real quality an actor must have… so your memory is incredibly important and I challenge it all the time».
Following the experience the actress founded a charity, SameYouto help patients recovering from strokes or brain-related diseases.
However, retracing the moments of the stroke, he recalled: «I felt the sharpest pain imaginable but luckily Game of Thrones lifted me up and gave me purpose.”
After Last Christmas, the actress has other projects in the pipeline: she voices the animated film The amazing Maurice with Hugh “Doctor House” Laurie, and then embraces the Marvel universe in the miniseries Secret Invasion with Samuel L. Jackson. She will dedicate herself to the family comedy about the difficulties of parental life in The Pod Generation alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor (Love actually).
