Becoming one of the biggest sensations, HBO is still looking for a replacement for Game of Thrones. The series starred Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen, Kit Harington as Jon Snow, Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, and many more.
Originally penned by George R. R. Martin, the novel was later adapted into a show by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Spanning over 8 seasons, peaking in at 19.3 million viewers.
Emilia Clarke was unhappy with Game of Thrones ending
Despite deviating from the source material, fans were fairly satisfied with the quality of the show in the later season, but many despise the last two seasons. In an interview with the DailyMail, Emilia Clarke commented on the fan reaction:
“The only thing I felt truthfully sad about was that David and Dan are my really good friends, and so it’s for them that I feel heartbreak, because it’s theirs.”
The Emmy-winning series’ ending was so universally hated by the fans that the last episode received an IMDb rating of 4.1. The fans were so disappointed with the show that many actually would’ve preferred that the White Walkers won.
Did Game of Thrones cause aneurysms for Emilia Clarke?
While speaking on BBC One, the mother of all dragons spoke on the brain injuries that she has suffered along the way. She stated that she suffered her first two aneurysms at the end of the first season of Game of Thrones.
Speaking on the events that followed and her experience dealing with the condition, she stated:
“I had a couple of brain hemorrhages. You gain a lot of perspectives and it puts your head in a different place when dealing with the juggernaut of being in a successful show…. it was just the most excruciating pain.”
Brain aneurysms cause blood flow to the brain to cease, and can result in long-lasting damage to the organ. The Breaker of Chains revealed she lost a substantial portion of her brain since the event.
Game of Thrones is now streaming on HBO.
