GAME OF THRONES EMILIA CLARKE TALKS ABOUT HER UNDERLYING HEALTH CONDITION!!
Mother Of Dragons Emilia Clarke feared she’d lose her job if the producers of GOT came to know about her double brain aneurysm.
Daenerys Targaryen aka Mother of Dragons had two brain aneurysm surgeries at the beginning of the eighth and last season of the show. The disease could’ve potentially killed her. She underwent surgery almost 8-months ago. She was skeptical about revealing her condition. She feared she would lose her role in the show.
She revealed this on a podcast with Table Manners saying that with the first one, she couldn’t let them know what had happened until they knew that she wasn’t going to die. She added that she was consistently scared of being fired for whatever reason.
When asked why she needed to hide the truth from them, she said she was scared for her life and her job.
Emilia quickly recovered but she was scared to explain her condition to people, as she thought she’d become the victim of the stereotype, ‘an actress with a sob story’
Clarke ultimately told her story to the New Yorker as she launched a charity to aid patients with a brain aneurysm.
