Confirmed: Claire Foy Was Paid Less Than Matt Smith on 'The Crown'


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. Smith came into The Crown - where he played Prince Philip for two seasons - with considerably more experience after having spent three seasons starring as The Doctor on Doctor Who.

The producers also admitted that the transition into a more contemporary story is a minefield for them, as they risk offending their actual subjects.

The makers of the Netflix drama, speaking at a television conference in Jerusalem yesterday, claimed Smith was paid more because he was better known when the series was cast.

Amendola is also an experienced return specialist, which could mean he'll push receiver/returner Jakeem Grant for his role. He led the team in catches (26) and receiving yards (348) and was second in touchdowns with two.

She may literally be playing the queen in The Crown, but Claire Foy is still suffering from the societal problems of us plebeians. "Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen", she said.

We too frequently underpay women and underestimate their talent, yet lament when they don't have "star power".

For the forthcoming third season of the Netflix drama, Prince Phillip has yet to be cast, though Helena Bonham Carter will portray Princess Margaret.

Huq told the BBC the package sent to her on Monday contained a "low-level noxious substance and an offensive letter". The organization said that some of the letters appear to have been mailed out of Sheffield, the NYT reported.

I hope that whoever is replacing Smith (rumor has it that it's Hugh Laurie) will be making less money than Olivia Colman, as promised, because as Mackie said, "no one gets paid more than the Queen".

The Crown chronicles Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the present day. Olivia Colman will play the queen when the series resumes filming in July, while the new Philip has yet to be announced. Beyond being the main character in the series, Foy's critically-acclaimed performance has won prestigious awards. The success carried on into the second season, with Foy bringing home another SAG Award and earning another Golden Globe nomination.
