“It was the most excruciating pain.”

Back in 2019, Emilia revealed that she suffered two brain aneurysms in 2011 and 2013 and had to get surgery to save her life.

Emilia said she experienced “excruciating pain” and that starring in Game of Thrones helped “sweep me up and give me that purpose.”

“The amount of my brain that is no longer usable — it’s remarkable that I am able to speak, sometimes articulately, and live my life completely normally with absolutely no repercussions,” she said.

“I am in the really, really, really small minority of people that can survive that.”

Emilia also talked about seeing her brain scans after the aneurysms and realizing that “quite a bit” of her brain function had disappeared afterward.

“Strokes, basically, as soon as any part of your brain doesn’t get blood for a second, it’s gone,” she said, after saying that thinking about her lower brain function “makes me laugh.”

“So the blood finds a different route to get around, but then whatever bit is missing is therefore gone.”
