Bob Odenkirk suffered from a heart-related incident last summer and it is now forcing him to see life a lot differently. The actor was rushed to the hospital while filming the show Better Call Saul. The 59-year-old explained, “My widow-maker artery was completely blocked. That’s why it’s called the widow-maker, because you die when that happens. But I went down. And I was very lucky that my co-stars, Rhea Seehorn and Patrick Fabian, were right nearby.”

Luckily, he got help right away and was able to fully recover. While recovering, he said that it helped to receive support from his co-stars, family, friends, and fans on social media. While he admitted that social media can be a “cesspool,” sometimes it can be a positive place.

He added, “And I didn’t know about it ’til about a week or two later when people showed me the outpouring of love that came my way that I don’t deserve. But I appreciate very much. And for the rest of my life will be thinking about and trying to be worthy of.”
