Emilia Clarke opens up about health struggles while filming ‘Game of Thrones’

In an essay written for The New Yorker, Emilia Clarke has revealed the serious health struggles she faced while filming Game of Thrones. 

Shortly after production wrapped for Season 1 in 2011, Clarke remembers collapsing at the gym following a severe headache. The incident would mark the beginning of the first of two major surgeries for Clarke, each tied to a life-threatening brain aneurysm. 

“At some level, I knew what was happening: my brain was damaged,” Clarke recalls.

“The diagnosis was quick and ominous: a subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), a life-threatening type of stroke, caused by bleeding into the space surrounding the brain. I’d had an aneurysm, an arterial rupture.” Read more…

But according to Alexa Davies, star of the new Channel 4 comedy, that’s not the case. Dead Pixels, Davies explains, is not a commentary on the stereotypical view of gaming culture as a virtual world populated by those who feel safer online. Read more…
