Netflix pays its queen less than her consort on 'The Crown'

Claire Foy and The Queen Claire Foy Got Paid LESS Than Matt Smith For The Crown

While Smith certainly had more star power when he was cast - having previously starred in United Kingdom series Doctor Who - Foy's quickly rose over the span of the first season.

Except that it won't get fixed for Foy: She's aged out of the series, at 33.

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. Smith did not receive any award season recognition for his work as Prince Philip. The fact that she was paid less than her on-screen husband Matt Smith (himself a small screen favourite thanks to Doctor Who), has met with predictable outrage. British actress Olivia Coleman is stepping in to play the older monarch as upcoming Season 3 of the show moves into the 1970s.

But The Crown's third season presents a unique challenge of its own, as Netflix begins to draft an entirely new ensemble cast, beginning with Olivia Colman as the Queen.

"Going forward, no one gets paid more than the queen", Variety quoted Mackie as saying. Prince Philip will also be played by a different actor.

If we base actors' salaries on their past roles, rather than the demands of their current ones, men will still, invariably, come up trumps.

At this time, representatives for Foy and Smith have not commented while Netflix declined to address the shocking pay discrepancy.

Forbes's annual highest-paid list draws further attention to the gender pay gap.

Since the news of the pay disparity between Claire and Matt broke, many fans of The Crown has taken to social media to express their anger.

Earlier this year actress Michelle Williams was paid a fraction of what her All The Money In The World co-star Mark Wahlberg earned for the movie's reshoots.
