David Cross has given an update on actor Bob Odenkirk following his hospitalisation earlier this week.

Odenkirk was filming a scene on Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul when he “went down, and was immediately surrounded by crew members who called an ambulance”, TMZ reported on Tuesday night (27 July).

On Wednesday, Odenkirk’s representative gave an update, saying the actor was in a “stable condition” after “experiencing a heart-related incident”, Variety reported

The representative said: “He 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 and ask for their privacy at this time as Bob works on his recovery.”

Now, Cross – who is Odenkirk’s regular comedy partner – has given a further update via social media, saying that Odenkirk is “doing great”.

He tweeted: “Just got off the phone with Bob and he’s doing great! Joking and japing and joshing. Both he and his family are overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and concern everyone has shown. You will be hearing from him soon. But he’s doing really well!”

Earlier in the week, Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston sent well wishes to their former Breaking Bad co-star.

On Instagram, Paul shared a picture of Odenkirk and wrote: “I love you my friend”.

Cranston shared a picture of him with Odenkirk and wrote: “Today I woke up to news that has made me anxious all morning. My friend, Bob Odenkirk collapsed last night on the set of Better Call Saul. He is in the hospital in Albuquerque and receiving the medical attention he needs but his condition is not known to the public as yet.

“Please take a moment in your day today to think about him and send positive thoughts and prayers his way, thank you.”

The actor has received a huge amount of support over on social media from fans and actors alike. Odenkirk’s co-star Michael McKean tweeted his support for Odenkirk, writing: “Sending huge love to our @mrbobodenkirk. You got this, brother”. While Elijah Wood added: “Oh man, really hope Bob Odenkirk is OK.”
