Last night news broke that Bob Odenkirk had collapsed on the set of his AMC series Better Call Saul while filming in New Mexico, and was immediately rushed to a hospital. Since then, fans have been waiting with bated breath for some kind of update on the actor’s health, let alone some clarity about what exactly happened in the first place.

We still don’t know much about the latter—in a statement, his reps alluded to a “heart-related incident”—but thankfully it seems as if he’s doing well. That same statement says that Odenkirk is “in stable condition,” meanwhile his son Nate has since tweeted “he’s going to be okay.”

At the time of his collapse, Odenkirk was halfway through filming for Better Call Saul‘s sixth and final season. He was most recently seen in the thriller Nobody, which offered the actor a chance to play against type as a grizzled action hero. Odenkirk is among the more universally beloved actors in Hollywood these days by his industry peers and fans alike, from his comedy days on Mr. Show to his scene-stealing appearances in films like Little Women (his first scene has since become one of the rare positive memes on Twitter.) The statement from his representative concludes with: “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.”
