!! OMG, quote of the day: Emilia Clarke on suffering two life-threatening brain aneurysms during ‘Game of Thrones’ !!
I had just finished filming Season 1 of “Game of Thrones.” Then I was struck with the first of two aneurysms. I emerged from the operation with a drain coming out of my head. Bits of my skull had been replaced by titanium. These days, you can’t see the scar that curves from my scalp to my ear, but I didn’t know at first that it wouldn’t be visible. And there was, above all, the constant worry about cognitive or sensory losses. Would it be concentration? Memory? Peripheral vision? Now I tell people that what it robbed me of is good taste in men. But, of course, none of this seemed remotely funny at the time.
– GOT actress Emilia Clarke, who after getting an MRI, was told she suffered a “a subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), a life-threatening type of stroke, caused by bleeding into the space surrounding the brain.”
