'Better Call Saul' star Bob Odenkirk suffered a heart attack on the set of the hit show in July 2021, and on the anniversary of the incident, the actor took to Twitter to thank his fans for the outpouring of support and goodwill that came his way.

"A year ago today I briefly flirted with "quietus" and this elicited a wave of goodwill and warmth towards me," Odenkirk said.

"I will forever feel unworthy of it. I will also always be appreciative and look to pass it on. Thank you."

In classic Bob Odenkirk deadpan fashion, he added "no reply necessary".

Odenkirk fell ill on the set of the 'Breaking Bad' spin-off last July, where it emerged he had suffered a heart attack.

The star was rushed to hospital in New Mexico, and filming for the show was briefly suspended while Odenkirk recovered.

Filming resumed 6 weeks later, with the show now entering it's final episodes.

Speaking on Stephen Colbert earlier this year, Odenkirk revealed he was "lucky to be alive" as a result of the incident, and thanked the paramedic that performed CPR on him.

He shouted out Rosa Estrada, the health officer on the film set at the time who started CPR on him "and did it right", and also thanked Angie Myer who aided her.

The Emmy winner recently told the New York Times he considered the role of Saul Goodman to be "the most challenging role" he's ever played in his near 30-year plus career, saying the role required him to "dig deep" into himself.

Odenkirk first came to fame as one half of 'Mr. Show With Bob and David' in the 1990s, with the show attaining a cult following and helping launch the careers of Jack Black and Sarah Silverman.

The actor became widely known to a generation of TV fans for his role as Saul Goodman in 'Breaking Bad', with the sleazy lawyer becoming a fan favourite.

Odenkirk has received 5 Emmy nominations for playing everyones favourite TV lawyer, and admits he "will miss" playing the role.
