Emilia Clarke Opens Up About Her Near Death Experience

As Danerys Taergaryn on "Game of Thrones," Emilia Clarke plays a character who can walk through fire. And the actress has found that, in some ways, she can, too. She tells correspondent Tracy Smith that portraying a strong woman on TV helped her to be one in life, when she suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage, twice, and nearly died. Having completed ten years' production on the hit HBO series, Clarke has started a charity, SameYou, for brain injury survivors.
