The true life motivational story of Emilia Clarke is so inspiring, though she went through so much pains to the point of forgeting her own name, today her story is truly a motivation for so many.
Her recovery story.
While filming the second season of Game of Thrones, Emilia was at the gym when she felt an excruciating pain deep inside her brain, and after she managed to crawl to the bedroom she sank to her knees in front of the toilet.
She was recovered lying on the floor by a woman while she was trying to recall her lines from the Game of Thrones.
Emilia Clarke was suffering from a life-threatening brain anuerysm.
Recovery was worse as she went through so much pain. After three hours of undergoing brain surgery; the doctors told her she might not be able to make it through the next coming two weeks.
And when a nurse inquired about her name, she couldn’t answer because she had forgotten her own name.
Eventhough the memory loss was temporary, her recovery was very slow and the fear only amplified.
After one month she was back on set, acting out her scenes.
She was found sipping on morphine between press interviews and hiding her fatigue behind makeup.
But no matter how the pain kept getting worse, Emilia did not complain.
She would say: “I was raised never to say, “It’s not fair”; I was taught to remember that there is always someone who is worse off than you”.
A second and third operation.
In the year 2013, she had a routine brain scan which showed Emilia needed a second surgery, before she can totally recover from the pain.
“The procedure would be simple” doctors promised her only for her to wake up screaming in pain; because the surgey failed and she had a massive internal bleeding.
And for this reason, she needed a third operation.
To save her life, the Doctors had to drill through her skull.
A few weeks later at Comin-Con, Emilia hiding her scars with her hair faced thousand of enthusiastic fans. But after somewhile she was hit by an excruciating headache.
And as she stepped off the stage, an MTV reporter was waiting for her; but she didn’t go with her.
She just played Khaleesi for the third season, and the fourth, and the fifth…
As her character grew stronger and fiercer, Emilia Clarke learned to surrender to the unknown. And instead of trying to avoid her fears, she faced it squarely.
When the eighth and final season came around, she was still very much alive.
But the only one thing that remained for Emilia to do was completely heal. And for the first time after keeping quiet for nearly a decade, she opened up about her experience.
After her complete recovery.
After her complete recovery Emilia Clarke gave herself fully over to charity work with the same dedication that turned her into a fan-favorite.
She now give others the chance to afford the treatments she was lucky to receive.
Emilia truly persevered and went against all odds to live.
