The Crown's Claire Foy was paid less than co-star Matt Smith

Claire Foy and The Queen Claire Foy Got Paid LESS Than Matt Smith For The Crown
Herman Weaver | 14 March, 2018, 22:38

The fact that Foy played, and nailed, the titular role in The Crown makes her smaller pay packet register as a prime example of gender inequality and discrimination in the media.

Smith's starring role on Doctor Who earned him a higher salary for the show, which reportedly had a budget of £100m, producers said.

However, they also pledged to rectify the pay gap for future seasons. Smith did not receive any award season recognition for his work as Prince Philip.

In an exclusive interview Olivia, who starts filming series three of the Netflix hit in July, said: "I'm really nervous to take over something that's been so great - it's scary".

"Going forward, no one gets paid more than the queen", Variety quoted Mackie as saying.

Speaking at the INTV Conference on Tuesday, creative director Suzanne Mackie confirmed that Matt was given a better wage due to his popularity following Doctor Who, while Claire was a relatively unknown actress ahead of the show. Foy not getting equal pay on a show where her character and Smith's are constantly fighting about him feeling emasculated by her power is so deliciously poetic I could nearly laugh.

At this time, representatives for Foy and Smith have not commented while Netflix declined to address the shocking pay discrepancy. If we look at how few lead roles there are available for non-white actors, we can imagine how producers will be able to justify paying their BAME cast members less than their white co-stars who will have had so many more opportunities to play great parts. The Crown costs $7 (€5.6) million an episode to produce.

Oh, dear: Even the Queen of England has difficulty getting paid as much as her male counterpart. Wahlberg donated $2 (€1.6) million to a fund dedicated to fighting pay inequality and harassment of women in the name of Williams.
