Emilia Clarke starred in one of the most profitable series of the last decade. Due to health problems, the actress was afraid that she would lose her job.

The period of the greatest popularity of “Game of Thrones” also turned out to be the most difficult period in the life of Emilia Clarke, the series’ Daenerys Targaryen. Just after finishing work on the first season of the production, the then 24-year-old actress suffered a stroke while exercising at the gym. Suddenly, she felt a severe, thundering headache and accompanying nausea, and then she realized what had happened.

As a result of the incident, Clarke had to undergo life-saving surgery. Later, she struggled with speaking for some time. The second stroke occurred in 2013, when the aneurysm was already twice as large. Statistics known to the actress show that she was extremely lucky to recover fully after two strokes.

In an interview for “Big Issue”, the actress admitted that the disease caused her problems with self-esteem. “When you have brain damage, because it changes your self-esteem so dramatically, all the insecurity you feel going into work quadruples overnight,” Clarke explained.

However, her greatest fear was that she would be fired because the producers deemed her unfit for work. “The first fear we all had was, ‘Oh my God, am I going to get fired? Am I going to get fired because they think I can’t do the job?'” she said. The disease became a source of shame for Emilia Clarke: “To be brutally honest, the whole experience left me with a huge sense of shame. I felt broken. I thought the producers thought I was unreliable and that they would regret it employ me,” she said in an interview with “Big Issue”.
