People: Emilia Clarke talks about fears after brain injury

After filming the first season of “Game of Thrones,” Clarke was diagnosed with an aneurysm in her head. Now the Dragon Queen is talking about her feelings afterwards: “Will I be fired?”

“Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke spoke in an interview about the consequences of her brain injury. “All the insecurities that you go to work with quadruple overnight,” the 37-year-old told the newspaper “Big Issue”.

One fear she had: “Oh my God, am I going to get fired? Am I going to get fired because they think I’m not capable of doing the job?” the British actress continued. She also felt a “deep loneliness” after the injury. But the illness also gave her “superpowers”.

Clarke played the dragon queen Daenerys Targaryen in the fantasy saga “Game of Thrones” (2011-2019). After filming the first season in 2011, she was diagnosed with an aneurysm in her head – a blood-filled bulge in an artery.

She spoke publicly about her health problems and the two life-saving brain surgeries in March 2019. In February 2024, she and her mother Jennifer Clarke were honored by Prince William for their commitment to people with brain injuries.
