Emilia Clarke Thought She’d Be Fired From 'Game Of Thrones' Because Of Her Brain Aneurysms

What? The Mother Of Dragons herself was scared of getting fired from the show that needed her desperately because she had brain aneurysms?

Jeez poor girl... stressing about brain aneurysms is hard enough but having to worry about possibly losing your job because of them is something on a whole nother level.

Quick, name the best 'Game Of Thrones' character.


Besides Tyrion.

Yes! Emilia Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen (who has a better story than Daenerys?). She's awesome, she's powerful, she's a great leader and finally, Emilia is totally irreplaceable.

But did you know she thought she was going to get fired?

And for the strangest of reasons...


See back in 2011 and 2013, Clarke had two sperate brain aneurysms that she didn't go public about until this year.


Well, I can let her answer that:

“With the first one, I couldn’t let them know what had happened until they knew that I wasn’t going to die,”

Apparently after the first one it took her three weeks to get back on the horse.


"Sorry for not answering the old emails. I’ve just been a bit, you know… I’m fine! By the way, everything’s great. I’m totally fine. I’m going to be back to work, nothing’s wrong with me. I’m all good.'”

She also constantly worried about getting fired.

“I just was, and consistently, so scared of being fired for whatever reason,” she added. “So I was just like… that was just me, more than [them]. I had no idea how taken care of I was.”

She also talks briefly about how having a brain aneurysm is like a social media attack:

“I do feel like the brain hemorrhages are the literal, physical embodiment of what it is to be attacked on a social media, because I didn’t want to look anyone in the eye, and I didn’t want anyone to recognize me".

Poor thing.
