Bob Odenkirk was rushed to the hospital Tuesday after collapsing on the set of Better Call Saul. The actor and his colleagues were filming in New Mexico when Odenkirk collapsed and an ambulance was called. For the moment, he remains under medical supervision. It was TMZ who first reported the news.
Better Call Saul is currently filming its sixth and final season. The broadcast was originally scheduled for this year, but production was postponed due to the health crisis. It is unclear how far along the series was in filming its final 13 episodes and whether Odenkirk’s medical emergency will delay production.
It’s been a busy year for Odenkirk, who in addition to appearing in series “I Think You Should Go, No Activity and Mom”, made his first foray into the world of big-screen action movies in Nobody. At 58, he trained for two years to prepare for the film, learning boxing, jiu-jitsu, karate and judo moves in order to execute the production’s complex fight sequences.
We are waiting to hear from the actor to see if he has anything serious. We wish him a speedy recovery.
