Our Game of Thrones Queen Daenarys Targaryen, the mother of dragons, is indeed a victorious survivor. After her bittersweet victory against the white walkers, Emilia Clark now rises from the darkness after surviving not one but two hemorrhagic strokes. Apart from her blissful and goofy character, Danny’s image being bad ass on set whilst walking on fire and commanding vast armies helped her in her road to survival.
The young and multitalented actress revealed her greatest fears whilst shooting the first few seasons of Game of Thrones – which is basically the start of her biggest career break – in an emotional essay she wrote for The New Yorker last March 2019. In an interview with The Observer, Clarke spoke of how her struggle in fighting brain injury gave her a new outlook in life. Emilia shared, “I definitely think it’s a good thing. Having a brain haemorrhage that coincided precisely with the beginning of my career and the beginning of a show that became something quite meaty, it gave me a perspective that I wouldn’t have otherwise.”
Due to abnormal dilatations of vessels in her brain which eventually bursted and led to bleeding inside the skull, Emilia’s brain functionality may be adversely affected – but she fought hard and ended up victorious. Today, she is perfectly fine, shining more beautiful than ever. In fact, she is to star in a new movie, “Last Christmas” – a film depicted from the Wham! song. Clarke portrays a lady whose messy life is partly a result of recent illness. “I was able to bring a lot to the role,” she said. Clarke plays the youngest of a family of first-generation immigrants, dealing with the fallout of the Brexit propaganda.
Emilia Clarke is a thirty three year old actress from Oxfordshire, England. She interest in acting sparked at an early age of five. She went to Drama Centre London and debuted on television in 2009 at British medical-themed soap opera “Doctors”. Her entry to international stardom started in her hit fantasy television series “Game of Thrones” where she had been nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
