AP learned that Odenkirk was hospitalized due to a “heart-related incident,” according to a representative and is now stable and awake
A representative for Odenkirk released a statement saying the support from fans has been phenomenal: “Bob and his family would like to express gratitude for the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, as well as his cast, crew and producers who have stayed by his side. The Odenkirks would also like to thank everyone for the outpouring of well wishes.”
The representative also said the family is asking for privacy at this time.
Odenkirk was in New Mexico shooting the sixth and final season of the “Breaking Bad” spin-off. Crew members called an ambulance that took the 58-year-old actor to a local hospital.
Shortly before the statement was released, Odenkirk’s son Nate, the elder of his two children, tweeted, “He’s going to be OK.”
