Netflix Paid Claire Foy Less Than Matt Smith for 'The Crown'

The Crown Season 2 Claire Foy Netflix

The Crown Season 2 Claire Foy Netflix

Two producers on Netflix's The Crown revealed Tuesday that Matt Smith made more than Claire Foy for the first two seasons of the show. She was so impressive that she won a Golden Globe for her performance in 2017, along with an Emmy nod, and earned another Golden Globe nomination this past year.

The actor who played Prince Philip on "The Crown" made more money than the actress who played Queen Elizabeth II, and it's not a good look for Netflix given that Queen Elizabeth is inarguably the show's main character.

"The producers acknowledged that [Smith] did make more due to his Doctor Who fame, but that they would rectify that for the future", Variety reported.

Suzanne Mackie, creative director of Left Bank Pictures, which produced the Netflix series, added: "Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen".

Kathleen Wynne says contrast between her and Doug Ford is 'stark'
If Kathleen Wynne is anxious about competing with Doug Ford for votes in the upcoming provincial election, she's not letting on. Wynne said she's sticking to her plan and wants to keep focused on her government's record and plans for the future.

The English actress, 33, played the lead role of Queen Elizabeth while Smith, 35 played her husband, Prince Philip.

It should be noted that Claire Foy will not get the chance to earn a fairer paycheck on The Crown since every role is being recast for the period drama's third season, which will begin filming in July and jump ahead to the 1970s. At some point, there needs to be a better marriage between common business practices and pay equality. Now, I could have accepted this sort of thing in the first season, begrudgingly, but by season two, there should have been some sort of pay bump for Foy, although I'm sure there was a contract issue that would have protected the production. For comparison, Donald Glover came in near the bottom of the TV salary actor rankings at $75,000 per episode for Atlanta. Her turn in BBC's Wolf Hall earned her a BAFTA nomination, and the series as a whole was a massive critical and commercial success.

Foy likely won't be making less than her male co-stars for long, however, as her career is booming at the moment.
