Peter Cushing was originally cast as Vesalius, but he declined because his wife was in poor health at the time.

A young Joanna Lumley appeared as a laboratory assistant, but her scenes were cut.

Phibes wife (shown in photos and in their double coffin at the end) was played by Caroline Munro. She wasn’t credited as she was under contract to Hammer Films at the time.
