Bob Odenkirk has been rushed to hospital after collapsing on the set of his hit Netflix show, Better Call Saul according to reports.

The former Breaking Bad actor was shooting a scene for the programme in New Mexico when the incident is said to have taken place.

Sources told celebrity site TMZ that the 58-year-old actor “went down” mid-scene with crew members immediately calling for an ambulance at 11.34am local time.

According to the site, Bob is currently still under medical care in hospital.

OK! has contacted representatives of the Emmy-award winning actor who have not yet made an official comment.


Fans and celebrities have been quick to send the "national treasure" well wishes on social media.

Actor Stirling K Brown tweeted: “Wishing the wonderful actor and exceptional human being @mrbobodenkirk a speedy and full recovery.”

“Big prayers for national treasure Bob Odenkirk", one fan tweeted.

While a second wrote: “Say a prayer for the fantastically talented Bob Odenkirk. Hope he’s ok.”

Another said: “If you watch Better Call Saul (it’s one of TV’s truly great shows) and you’ve ever felt like an outsider excluded from something you wanted to be a part of, then you identify deeply with Bob Odenkirk. I don’t know him, but he matters to me. And I’m sending my love too.”

At the time of the alleged incident, Bob had been filming the sixth and final series of Better Call Saul, in which he plays crooked lawyer Jimmy McGill who takes on the pseudonym Saul Goodman.

The star rose to fame after featuring in the hit Netflix series, Breaking Bad, where he played dodgy attorney Saul Goodman.

Production of the spin-off show began on March 10 this year. Peter Gould, the executive producer, previously confirmed the show's final season will include a total of 13 episodes rather than the usual 10.

The final season is scheduled to air in 2022.

Alongside his lengthy acting career, Bob is also a writer for TV shows such as Saturday Night Live and The Ben Stiller Show.

He is married to manager Naomi Odenkirk, with whom he has two children.
