Claire Foy's Netflix Pay Gap a Crowning Example of Disparity

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

"The Crown" chronicles Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the present day.

Producers point to Smith's starring role in "Doctor Who" - he played the sci-fi hit's Eleventh Doctor from 2010 to 2014 - as the reason for him making more than Foy.

Foy, 33, was already making a name for herself in British costume drama, with roles in "Upstairs Downstairs" and "Wolf Hall", when she was tapped to play the queen.

However, critics say this could only explain the first season - before Foy won a host of awards and nominations for the role.

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.

However, even if the pay gap is remedied in future seasons, it won't benefit Foy, whose work on the series is over.

Claire Foy who has played Queen Elizabeth II during the first two series of the show has been paid less for her work than co-star Matt Smith who played her onscreen husband, Prince Phillip the Duke of Edinburgh.

- emmy (@cIairesfoy) March 13, 2018Matt Smith was paid more for The Crown than Claire Foy.

Suzanne Mackie, the Left Bank creative director and executive producer acknowledged that Smith's experience on "Doctor Who" fuelled the salary disparity. 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.

Wahlberg topped the list past year with $68 million while the highest-earning actress, Emma Stone, made $26 million, Vanity Fair reported.

Mackie said, "Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen".

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

In January, it was revealed that Michelle Williams earned 1% of what costar Mark Wahlberg received for re-shooting "All The Money" without Kevin Spacey.
