‘We Almost Lost Her’: Jason Momoa Speaks Out About Fellow GoT Star Emilia Clarke’s Aneurysms

As the onscreen husband of dragon slayer Khaleesi, Jason Momoa isn’t usually caught with his guard down. But he’s all in his feelings about co-star Emilia Clarke’s battle with aneurysms, and he isn’t afraid to speak out about it. On April 3, 2019, Momoa got real about Clarke’s secret struggle, her strength, and her impact on the world at the GoT season eight premiere in New York City.

Secret Struggle

Clarke has been dealing with aneurysms since the end of GoT season one. Momoa recalled, “I’m very sad because we almost lost her the first time. So, I love her to bits and she’s here and she’s going to do great things with it and teach the world.”

After her first aneurysm, Clarke secretly received brain surgery and recovered in the hospital for one month. However, she had to go through another surgery at the end of GoT season three, and the complications from that surgery led to yet another one.

Endless Strength

Through it all, Clarke somehow found the strength to start her own charity, Same You. This non-profit organization helps those that have suffered from stroke and brain injury to have better access to rehabilitation services.

Clarke bravely shared her health struggles with the public. Her courage has been an inspiration to many, especially those that have endured similar health issues.

Stunning Victory

Clarke may have not had the strength to fight for her life if it weren’t for her many close friends. Momoa shared, “I’ve kind of been a part of that whole situation for a very long time, so we’ve had so many scares and trying to find the right way to come out and help.”

The ruggedly handsome actor has been a steadfast supporter of Clarke’s since day one. “I just think it’s beautiful that… she’s so brave in helping the world and trying to raise awareness,” he stated.

Social media response has been super supportive

@kayleerc90 gushed on Twitter, “their friendship is everything  #JasonMomoa #EmiliaClarke

@GummyFlavor daydreamed on Twitter, “If Jason Momoa wasn’t married to Lisa Bonnet, he’d be THE man for Emilia Clarke. He’s been so loyal to her, he admires her and the love he has for her is so special. Yep, in another life they would totally be THAT couple. #EmiliaClarke #JasonMomoa”

@rosaphoenix geeked out on Twitter, “love them #JasonMomoa #KhalDrago #EmiliaClarke #Khaleesi”
