Emilia Clarke Tells Of How She Has Continued Filming ‘Game Of Thrones’ After Brain Surgery

English actress Emilia Clarke, best known for her role as ‘Daenerys Targaryen’ in the HBO fantasy TV series ‘Game of Thrones’ opened up about the brain surgery she had undergone in 2013. As one’s remember, Clarke received the surgery for an aneurysm on one side of her brain, at that time she was performing for the said series.

Clarke said during a conversation with Bryan Cogman, Alan Taylor, and Dan Weiss that just a few weeks after the treatment, she returned to set even though the recovery process did not complete.

“It was crazy intense. We are in the desert in a quarry in like ninety-degree heat, and I had the consistent fear that I was going to have another brain hemorrhage. I spent a lot time just being like: ‘Am I gonna die? Is that gonna happen on set? Because that would be really inconvenient.’ And with any kind of brain injury it leaves you with a fatigue that’s indescribable. I was trying so hard to keep it under wraps.”

Then the actress added that in case she had called her doctor, he would said her to just “chill out.”

“But I still felt blind fear, and the fear was making me panic, and the panic was leading me to feel like I’m going to pass out in the desert. So they brought in an air-conditioned car for me—sorry, planet.”

Clarke stated that throughout the time she on the show, she never put self-health first although the filmmakers did not want to work her too hard.

At the end of the conversation, the actress described the chance of being a part of the series as “Willy Wonka golden ticket.”

“I was like: ‘Don’t think I’m a failure; don’t think I can’t do the job that I’ve been hired to do. Please don’t think I’m going to f**k up at any moment.’ I had the Willy Wonka golden ticket. I wasn’t about to hand that in.”
