Emilia Clarke talks about her brain surgeries/ aneurysms

Emilia talks about the first aneurysm shortly before filming the second season. She had no idea what was going on with Dany in season 2. Her second aneurysm/ surgery was between seasons 2 and 3.

A quote from the article:

I emerged from the operation with a drain coming out of my head. Bits of my skull had been replaced by titanium. These days, you can’t see the scar that curves from my scalp to my ear, but I didn’t know at first that it wouldn’t be visible. And there was, above all, the constant worry about cognitive or sensory losses. Would it be concentration? Memory? Peripheral vision? Now I tell people that what it robbed me of is good taste in men. But, of course, none of this seemed remotely funny at the time.
