Bob Odenkirk worked on the set of Better Call Saul and had a heart attack exactly one year ago. He felt after the event. Tuesday night, he went on social media to say, “Thank you, whoever you are, for the wave of goodwill and warmth.”
He later told the New York Times about what happened.
A Thank You to you, whoever you are. A year ago today I briefly flirted with "quietus" and this elicited a wave of goodwill and warmth towards me. I will forever feel unworthy of it. I will also always be appreciative and look to pass it on. Thank you. No reply necessary.

Bob Odenkirk said, “We were filming a scene, and we had been filming all day. I didn’t return to my trailer, which was a good thing. After filming the scene for the AMC show, the actor stayed on set to ride a stationary bike. He adds, “Rhea said I started turning bluish-gray right away.” Three shocks from an automatic defibrillator were needed to get his heart going again.

On Tuesday, the always humble Bob Odenkirk said about all the love he had received, “I will always feel unworthy of it.” I will also always be grateful and try to share what I’ve learned. Many thanks. No need to answer.”
Thanks for all of us, too ♥️ pic.twitter.com/uHkgMYN4gu

But a thousand people wrote back to say how much they liked the actor. Look down. Some of them are cool.
