The actress suffered 2 aneurysm during the filming of the epic series Game of Thrones (GoT). The first was shortly after season one in 2011. The second aneurysm was in 2013.
The first time it happened she didn't want anyone to know. She kept away from social media and wouldn't answer emails. She started experiencing signs of the illness during a workout. Clarke said she felt sick and with an intense pressure on her brain. The second time was much more painful and Clarke admits she wanted to disappear completely.
"I wanted to disappear completely, to wipe myself off the face of the earth, because I couldn't handle the level of interaction. Because I felt totally laid bare, totally vulnerable, totally in pain."
