Breaking Bad star Bod Odenkirk has been rushed to the hospital after collapsing on set of Better Call Saul in New Mexico.
The 58-year-old actor and comedian from Illinois was hospitalised on July 27th, 2021 as TMZ confirms, while his current condition at the hospital is unknown.
His friend and Better Call Saul co-star Bryan Cranston has asked fans to send good thoughts and prayers Odenkirk’s way, as his wife and manager, Naomi Odenkirk remains by the actor’s side.
Who is Bob Odenkirk’s wife?
Naomi Odenkirk has been Bod Odenkirk’s wife for over two decades and they have two children together, Nathan, 22 and Erin, 21.
She reportedly met Bob Odenkirk at a comedy show in West Hollywood in 1994. The pair official got married in 1997 and has been together ever since.
Born Naomi Yomtov, Bob Odenkirk’s wife works as a producer in Hollywood and has been credited on ‘Melvin Goes To Dinner’ in 2003. She’s also listed as a producer on ‘W/Bob and David’, ‘Comedy By The Numbers’, and ‘Derek and Simon: The Show’.
Naomi is also the manager of the actor as Bob Odenkirk told the Wall Street Journal in 2020.
“Yes, it’s hard. We figured it out years ago, but it was very hard for a long time,” he revealed.
His family has always played a supportive role in Odenkirk’s career. They were actually the people who convinced the Emmy-awarded actor and former writer of Saturday Night Live to not turn down the Breaking Bad spinoff “Better Call Saul,” as Odenkirk didn’t want to be away from his children and loving wife for long.
Apart from being her husband’s manager, Naomi Odenkirk has represented other stars in the likes of Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Derek Waters and Jenna Fischer.
