ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. ­— Actor Bob Odenkirk was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital after collapsing on the set of his show, “Better Call Saul.”

The 58-year-old was filming the show’s sixth season in Albuquerque Tuesday, TMZ reported.

“Odenkirk went down, and was immediately surrounded by crew members who called an ambulance,” the gossip site said.

It was unknown whether Odenkirk was conscious at the time of transport.

Friend and “Breaking Bad” co-star Bryan Cranston shared via Instagram, “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."

Variety reported that David Cross, who created and starred with Odenkirk in “Mr. Show with Bob and David,” said, “I will share what I know when I can but Bob is one of the strongest people I know both physically and mentally. He WILL get through this.”
