The star of Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke, reveals the cruel ordeal of a life-threatening stroke

GEmily Clarke, the star of The Thrones, broke a long silence to show that she survived a life-threatening stroke.

The actress suffered a potentially fatal brain hemorrhage in 2010 before undergoing an operation that made her forget her own name. Clarke, who stars in the fantasy television series Daenerys Targaryen, lived in the skull with a time bomb aneurysm for three years before suffering a brain hemorrhage again. Doctors operated on immediately, opening their skulls.

Clarke has launched SameYou, a charity that aims to help young people with brain injuries and help them gain access to resources. She said she wants to break her silence about her almost deadly brain injuries to help others who suffer from the "invisible disease".

"I know from experience that the effects of brain injury are shattering," said Clarke. "Recovery is long-term and rehabilitation can be difficult to access, brain injury can be an invisible disease, and the topic is often taboo – we need to help young adults control their recovery and be open without fear of stigma or shame."

The actress invaded Game Of Thrones as the fearsome Queen Daenerys, as her training was interrupted by tremendous pressure on her brain.
