She continued, “I never gave into any feeling of ‘Why me? This sucks.’ I was just like – gotta get back on it.’”

Clarke went on to add, “If I’m being brutally honest, the whole thing made me feel very ashamed. Like I was broken. As though the producers must think I’m an unreliable person that they’ve hired.”

Th actress shared that her diagnosis also had a great impact on how she looked at things. “If I hadn’t had a brain haemorrhage, I might have turned into a right old d*ckhead, thinking I was the bee’s knees, living in Hollywood. I’m so much more aware of what’s happening, in the moment that it’s happening.”

She continued, “I don’t worry about failure – I thrive on failure! If something goes wrong, I always think you can fix it. It hurts, it’s scary, but then you can do anything.”

The actress is set to receive Bazaar’s Woman of the Year Awards on November 7, following in the footsteps of Anya Taylor-Joy.
