Olivier wanted to cast Orson Welles in the role of Buckingham, but life-long friend Sir Ralph Richardson wanted the role, so Olivier gave it to him. In his autobiography, Olivier says he wishes cast Welles instead as he would have brought an extra element to the screen. King Richard III was 32 when he died, Hardwicke was 61 when he played him.
