    The awards were announced in King Charles’ 2024 New Year Honours List. The monarch applauded the Clarkes’ outstanding service and dedication, recognizing their role in establishing SameYou and raising considerable funds and awareness for people recovering from brain injuries and strokes.

    Emilia is renowned for her portrayal of Queen Daenerys Targaryen in ‘Game of Thrones’, but her her personal struggle with two aneurysms in 2011 and 2013 is also no secret. The actress has channelized her money into charity for others like herself through the creation of ‘SameYou’.

    Speaking to PEOPLE in 2019, Emilia had opened up about the importance of companionship during the recovery process. “The whole experience inspired me to launch my charity SameYou. People’s lives are transformed completely after a brain injury, and the core of our work is recovery — it’s not just the first weeks that you need help, you still need help for years,” she said.

    I wanted to match someone with a consistent person who has the answers and can hold their hand and tell them that they’re not alone. Being there when someone is scared, confused or angry is one of the kindest things you can do,” the ‘Me Before You‘ actress added.
