Bob Odenkirk returns to Better Call Saul after heart attack

Written by on 8 September 2021

Bob Odenkirk has returned to work on Better Call Saul less than two months after his heart attack.

The 58-year-old shared a picture of himself in the makeup chair on Twitter, writing: “Back to work on Better Call Saul! So happy to be here and living this specific life surrounded by such good people.”

“BTW this is makeup pro Cheri Montesanto making me not ugly for shooting!”

Odenkirk was taken to hospital by ambulance after he collapsed on the set of the Netflix show in New Mexico in July.

He later told fans he had suffered a “small” heart attack.

He added: “But I’m going to be OK thanks to Rosa Estrada and the doctors who knew how to fix the blockage without surgery.

“Also, AMC and SONYs support and help throughout this has been next-level. I’m going to take a beat to recover but I’ll be back soon.”

At the time, his former Breaking Bad co-stars sent their best wishes. Bryan Cranston told fans to send “positive thoughts and prayers his way” while Aaron Paul tweeted: “I love you my friend.”

Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul is set in and mostly shot in Albuquerque, New Mexico’s largest city.

Odenkirk has been nominated for four Emmys for his performance as the title character.
