The Crown's Claire Foy paid less than Netflix co-star Matt Smith

The Crown's Claire Foy paid less than Netflix co-star Matt Smith

The Crown executive producer Andy Harries, creative director Suzanne Mackie and production designer Martin Childs were speaking at a panel about the series at the INTV Conference in Jerusalem on Tuesday when the topic of pay was raised. "Broadchurch" alum Olivia Coleman will play the queen, and Smith's replacement has yet to be named.

Ms. Foy was reportedly paid $40,000 per episode, according to Variety, out of the show's hefty budget, which is upward of $7 million per episode.

Earlier this year it was disclosed that Michelle Williams was paid a fraction of what her All The Money In The World co-star Mark Wahlberg earned for reshooting sections of the movie.

However, I would like to state for the record that her getting paid less than Matt Smith is bullshit of the highest order.

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. They confirmed that this was because of the 35-year-old actor's Doctor Who credit, which had become a huge hit when it ran from 2010 to 2013, and quickly added that it would be rectified in the future.

They say the pay disparity was due to Dan's experience and profile working as Doctor Who - but promise it will not happen again. She has won two SAGs and a Globe.

The part has earned her a host of award season nominations, including at the BAFTAs, Golden Globes, Emmys and Screen Actors Guild awards.

A representative for Left Bank did not immediately respond to a request for comment. If the (TV version of the) queen of the freaking commonwealth can't get fair pay, what hope do the rest of us have?

The Crown is one of the most expensive television shows ever produced, costing about $130m (£93m) for the first season alone.
