Earlier this year, the star opened up about how she suffered and survived two brain aneurysms while filming the fantasy drama, the second of which almost killed her.

Emilia Clarke plays one of the baddest bitches on TV - Daenerys Targaryen, mother of dragons and potential ruler of the Iron Throne.

Since she revealed in March that she's experienced two brain aneurysms, "Game of Thrones" actress Emilia Clarke has spoken out about her experiences as she promotes the show ahead of its final season.

In her Sunday interview - during which she shared photos from her time in the hospital - the 32-year-old elaborated on her fears revealing that doctors told her a part of her brain died after her second aneurysm.

Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke kept it secret that she'd suffered two brain aneurysms during the early days of the show.

Discussing the temporary onset of aphasia, a neural condition which limits the ability of sufferers to speak, Clarke wrote "in my worst moments, I wanted to pull the plug".

Fortunately, Clarke said she and her brain are now "completely in the clear".

The actress explained that when a part of your brain is starved of blood for more than a minute, it dies, which is what happened to her after her second aneurysm. So, I had that.

"At certain points, I lost all hope", Clarke wrote in her essay. "That's the part of my brain, yeah, my decent taste in men", she joked.

"That was a deep paranoia, from the first one as well. I was like, 'What if something has short-circuited in my brain and I can't act anymore?' I mean, literally it's been my reason for living for a very long time!"

"The first time it was difficult, but with the second one, I found it much harder to stay optimistic", Clarke continued.

She has since made a full recovery, and even looked to her "badass" Game of Thrones character for strength.

"[I coped with it as a] a day to day thing".
