The 58-year-old reportedly fell to the ground and was immediately surrounded by crew members who called emergency services, according to TMZ.

There has been no official update on the star's condition at the time of writing.

Better Call Saul landed a renewal for one last season at AMC last year, but production was postponed due to the pandemic.

It is thought that production on the final episodes was in the early stages for a planned 2022 premiere.

Odenkirk has won four Emmy nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for playing attorney Jimmy McGill, aka Saul Goodman, on the hit series, but overall, it has amassed 40 primetime Emmy nominations to date, winning two.

Odenkirk shot to fame as a comedian on The Ben Stiller Show and later on HBO’s Mr. Show With Bob and David, alongside David Cross.

Odenkirk has also served as a writer for Saturday Night Live and Late Night With Conan O’Brien.
