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.

Failing to do so a penalty of Rs 50 (urban), Rs 40 (semi-urban), Rs 30 (rural) was charged on the bank account holder. RBI guidelines mandate that charges for non-maintenance of minimum balance in savings bank accounts be "reasonable".

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.

It looks like this film franchise is only going to get better, and I can not wait to finally see the first trailer. From what can be gathered from the trailer Albus Dumbledore has sent Newt to Paris on some kind of mission.

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.

According to Variety, Elisabeth Moss earned $200,000 per episode on The Handmaid's Tale after racking up six Emmy nominations during her time on Mad Men.
