    LONG AND WINDING ROAD HERE.
    >> YINDEED, YES.
    VERY WINDING.
    >> Stephen: WE'VE ALL GOTTEN TO KNOW YOU OVER-- HOW MANY
    YEARS OF SHOOTING HAS IT ACTUALLY BEEN, ON AIR?
    >> ALTOGETHER THE WHOLE THING IS A DECADE.
    IT'S 10 YEARS.
    >> Stephen: 10 YEARS, HOLY COW.
    >> OH, YEAH.
    >> Stephen: OVER THAT DECADE WE'VE GOTTEN TO KNOW YOU AS THIS
    FIERCE WARRIOR QUEEN.
    >> YES.
    >> Stephen: BUT WE RECENTLY FOUND OUT, YOU REVEALED IN "THE
    NEW YORKER," YOU HAD YOUR OWN PERSONAL BATTLE.
    TELL THE PEOPLE YOUR STORY FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW IT YET
    >> I SUFFERED TWO BRAIN HEMORRHAGES WHEN I WAS FILMING
    DURING THOSE 10 YEARS IN SEASON-- RIGHT AFTER WE SHOT
    SEASON ONE AND ALSO AFTER WE SHOT SEASON THREE, SO, YEAH.
    >> Stephen: SO HOW DID YOU KNOW YOU HAD A BRAIN HEMORRHAGE?
    >> OH, YOU KNOW.
    ( LAUGHTER ).
    >> Stephen: WELL, I GUESS, OKAY.
    >> YEAR, YOU KNOW, YOU ABSOLUTELY KNOW.
    IT'S-- THE KIND OF-- THE EASY WAY OF DESCRIBING IT IS THAT IT
    IS THE WORST-- THE WORST HEADACHE A HUMAN COULD PROBABLY
    POSSIBLY MANAGE TO SORT OF EXPERIENCE.
    YEAH.
    IT'S INTENSE.
    >> Stephen: SO WHAT DID THEY HAVE TO DO?
    SO YOU'RE HAVING IT.
    >> YES.
    >> Stephen: AND I ASSUME YOU'RE RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL.
    >> INDEED, YES.
    >> Stephen: WHAT DO YOU THINK IS GOING ON WHEN IT FIRST
    HAPPENED TO YOU?
    >> I GENUINELY KNOWN I WAS BEING BRAIN DAMAGED.
    I DON'T KNOW HOW.
    YOU'RE INCREDIBLY ILL, AND YOU HAVE THIS INCREDIBLY, JUST
    HORRIFIC, HORRIFIC HEADACHE, AND BEING VIOLENTLY ILL.
    AND SOMEWHERE-- AT SOME POINT IN MY LIFE I KNEW THAT THAT MEANT
    BRAIN DAMAGE.
    SO I JUST TRIED TO KEEP AS ACTIVE AS POSSIBLE, MOVED MY
    FINGERS AND MY TOES AND MY HANDS AND ASKED MYSELF QUESTIONS-- THE
    LINES -- >> Stephen: REALLY?
    >> GENUINELY TRYING TO FORCE MY MEMORY TO WORK AS MUCH AS I
    COULD TO STAY CONSCIOUS, TO STAY --
    >> Stephen: BUT HOW DID YOU EVEN HAVE THE MENTAL
    WHEREWITHALL TO KNOW THAT WOULD HELP YOU?
    I WOULDN'T KNOW TO DO THAT.
    >> THE MIND IS AN EXTRAORDINARY THING.
    >> Stephen: WAS IT A DEFENSE MECHANISM?
    >> 100% Y.
    I JUST KNEW, AND I KNEW-- NOT TODAY.
    >> Stephen: SO YOU-- WHAT DO WE SAY TO DEATH, ACTUALLY.
    WHAT DO WE SAY TO DEATH?
    ( APPLAUSE ).
    >> THANK YOU.
    >> Stephen: PEOPLE DIE FREQUENTLY FROM THIS.
    DID IT CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE TOWARD LIFE?
    HOW DID IT CHANGE YOUR OUTLOOK TO KNOW YOU HAD COME SO CLOSE TO
    SOMETHING SO DIRE?
    >> HONESTLY, BEING-- BEING COMPLETELY HONEST, IT MADE ME
    PETRIFIED MOST OF THE TIME, WHICH IS-- YEAH, IT HAPPENS A
    BUNCH.
    I WISH I COULD SIT HERE AND SAY I WAS JUST, LIKE, LET'S GO!
    YOU KNOW-- I DON'T KNOW-- JUMP OUT OF A PLANE.
    I REALLY WASN'T.
    >> Stephen: DON'T DO, THAT DON'T DO THAT.
    >> BUT I DID DO "GAME OF THRONES" INSTEAD, WHICH IS
    SIMILAR.
    >> Stephen: FLYING ON DRAGONS.
    >> INDEED.
    BUT AT THIS POINT YOU START TO HAVE-- YOU START TO REALIZE HOW
    LUCKY YOU ARE, AND THAT PERSPECTIVE GIVES YOU IT'S
    PERSPECTIVE THAT GIVES YOU IS ENORMOUS.
    AND THEN THAT IS FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
    YOU-- YOU KNOW, YOU'RE LUCKY.
    YOU KNOW HOW LUCKY YOU ARE.
    >> Stephen: WELL, YOU ARE LUCKY.

    >> YEAH.
    ( APPLAUSE ) >> Stephen: THE FINAL SEASON,
    AS I SAID BEFORE, THE FINAL SEASON OF "GAME OF THRONES" IS
    COMING, AND THERE'S BEEN ENORMOUS SECRECY AROUND IT.
    >> YES, YES.
    >> Stephen: HAVE YOU-- HAVE YOU TOLD ANYONE HOW IT ENDS?
    >> WELL, I'VE GOT TO BE HONEST, I DID.

    ( LAUGHTER ) >> Stephen: WERE YOU SUPPOSED
    TO?
    >> NOT JUST MY DOG.
    >> Stephen: WERE YOU SUPPOSED TO?
    >> I TOLD-- I WASN'T SUPPOSED TO-- SORRY, LADS.
    I TOLD MY MOM.
    BUT THE GOOD THING ABOUT TELLING MY MOM THESE THINGS SHE'S A
    VAULT BECAUSE SHE'S JUST DONE FORGOTTEN IT.
    I TOLD HER.
    AND WE WERE TALKI TALKING ABOUT OTHER DAY AND I WAS LIKE,
    "BECAUSE YOU KNOW."
    AND SHE WAS LIKE, "DO I?" AND I WAS LIKE, "YEAH, I TOLD
    YOU.
    YOU KIND OF READ OF THE ONE OF THE SCAENS."
    AND SHE SAID, "I CAN'T REMEMBER.
    WHAT HAPPENS?" AND I SAID, "I'M NOT GOING TILE
    TWICE SM GLVMENT I'M KIND OF JEALOUS OF YOUR MOTHER.
    YOU CAN ENJOY THINGS OVER AND OVER AGAIN THAT WAY.
    >> IF SHE FALLS ASLEEP ON A PLANE I'M WORRIED SHE WILL JUST
    SAY IT, HER SUB CONSCIOUS KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED.
    >> Stephen: IT'S ALL A DREAM!
    >> EXACTLY, EXACTLY.
    >> Stephen: WERE THERE TEARS AT THE VERY END, WHEN YOU READ
    THE END?
    >> YEAH!

    FIRST TIME I READ THE FINAL SEASON.
    I READ IT AND TO-- I COULDN'T QUITE HANDLE IT.
    SO I SORT OF WALKED OUT.
    LIKE IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN RAINING, IT WAS JUST THAT KIND
    OF A MOMENT.
    LIKE, "I'M IN A DAZE, AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON.
    EXISTENTIAL CRISIS."
    AND I JUST WENT FOR A WALK AND DIDN'T BRING ANYTHING AND KIND
    OF WALKED FOR TWO HOURS GOING "AAAH."
    >> Stephen: IS IT FRUSTRATING AT ALL THAT YOU CAN'T TALK ABOUT
    IT?
    >> DEEPLY!
    I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS TO BE OUT!
    I'M JUST GOING TO SAY IT.
    I KNOW IT.
    A ONE POINT IT'S GOING TO COME OUT ON LIVE TELEVISION.
