Emilia Clarke, in an interview with The Observer, stated that the life-threatening brain haemorrhage that she had at 24 was a good thing. For the unversed, in the year 2011, the actress had suffered a stroke, a subarachnoid haemorrhage caused by bleeding into the space around her brain. She revealed how she gained perspective on many things that she wouldn't have otherwise.

She said, "I definitely think it's a good thing. Because I was never destined to be the ‘young actor goes off the rails’ type, up and down the gossip columns. And having a brain haemorrhage that coincided precisely with the beginning of my career and the beginning of a show(Game of Thrones) that became something quite meaty, it gave me a perspective that I wouldn't have otherwise."

She added, "I'm quite a resilient human being, so a parent dying and brain haemorrhages coinciding with success and people following you in the street and getting stalkers - you're just like, 'Well, let's try and make something sensible of it.'"

For the unversed, she founded an NGO called SameYou, which provides treatment for patients who are recovering from a stroke and brain-related injuries. She also revealed that she didn't disclose about her health issue as it was nerve-racking for her to share it and she waited so long to share about it as she didn't want people to think of her as sick. In order to promote her charity, eight years after her stroke, she finally decided to reveal and talk about it with New Yorker.
