    In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the 59-year-old actor told that his heart attack, which happened on July 28, 2021, happened during the filming of an important moment in the recent season.

    He said, “I didn’t go back to shoot for five weeks. I had a five-week break to recover. And then when I went back, we limited our shooting to 12-hour days. And so they took care of me and I was able to do it, and hopefully you can’t tell when I had the heart attack and when I didn’t.”

    During filming last year, Bob collapsed in Albuquerque, where the series was being shot. He took to Twitter two days later to tell his fans that he just had a “small heart attack” and he would “be back soon.” The actor has reassured everyone since and said, “I feel very good. I’m in great shape.”

    The ‘Little Women’ actor then talked about the scene he was filming during his heart attack: “Probably about three-quarters of the scene was shot before I had the heart attack, the day of the heart attack, and then the other quarter scene was after.”

    Bob recollects that he has no memory of that day, saying “I’m really watching something that I don’t have any memory of acting in, which is a rare thing. I mean, usually you watch some, and you have some recall of that even if it was shot months ago. But in this case, it’s such a complete blank.”
