Emilia Clarke has revealed some details about the aneurysms she was suffering from while filming "Game of Thrones'.
The 35-year old actress revealed that she was afflicted by two brain aneurysms during the past. One occurred in 2011 and
the other in 2013. Aneurysms in the brain is a serious condition as it's a bulge inside the blood vessel. It is caused by a
weakness in the blood vessel's wall, typically at the point where it splits. Clarke will openly speak about how these
events have affected her in the future and recently did so while appearing on BBC One show "Sunday Morning".
"The amount of my brain that is no longer usable, it's remarkable that I am able to speak, sometimes articulately, and live
my life completely normally with absolutely no repercussions," Clarke stated. "I am among the very, really tiny
percentage of people who endure this. "There's quite some of my brain missing! This often makes me laugh.
"Because strokes happen, in essence, when any brain part doesn't be able to receive blood for even an instant the
brain is removed. "The blood will find another way to move around and then the part that's not there is gone." After
aneurysms, Clarke was diagnosed with aphasia and at one point , being incapable of remembering her own name.
