A malaise in the middle of filming
On Tuesday, July 27, the 58-year-old actor was in the middle of filming the final season of the series Better Call Saul, derived from Breaking Bad, when he suffered a “heart attack”, according to a statement. The following Wednesday, he was in “stable condition”, after being rushed to a hospital in the state of New Mexico, USA. Four days after this incident, he had given his news and thanked his fans for their support. “Thank you to my family and friends who surrounded me this week. And for the outpouring of love of all those who have expressed their concern and affection for me. That is beyond me. But I feel love and it means a lot to me,” he wrote on Twitter.
“I had a small heart attack,” the actor said, specifying that he was going to “get out of it”, thanks in particular to the doctors, who managed to treat him “without going through the surgery box”.
Four Emmy Awards
In Breaking Bad, Bob Odenkirk played Saul Goodman, the unscrupulous lawyer of Walter White, a chemistry professor turned drug lord. In Better Call Saul, he plays Jimmy McGill, a hoarse, half-crooked lawyer who has yet to become the Saul Goodman of Breaking Bad.
Bob Odenkirk has received four Emmys and has been nominated several times at the Golden Globes for his role in Better Call Saul. He had previously won two Emmys as a writer in other productions. The sixth season of Better Call Saul is expected in early 2022.
