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

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

Foy, 33, whose only major acting credit prior to The Crown was a role in BBC mini series Wolf Hall, pulled in $40,000 per episode, according to Variety.

Oh, dear: Even the Queen of England has difficulty getting paid as much as her male counterpart.

This will come as a huge shock for fans of the show as Foy has been nominated for and won countless roles for her unbelievable acting as the Queen.

While Colman has already been cast for the upcoming season, The Crown producers are still working on casting an "established actor" to play Prince Philip.

However, they also pledged to rectify the pay gap for future seasons.

The makers of the hit sitcom "The Crown" have made a decision to embrace salary parity after star Claire Foy earned less than her male co-star Matt Smith for the first two seasons.

talkRADIO presenter Harriet Minter has said it is ridiculous that Claire Foy earns less than co-star Matt Smith for The Crown.

Speaking at a television industry conference in Jerusalem, The Crown co-producer Suzanne Mackie insisted that the pay difference would be rectified. Olivia Coleman will take over the role of Queen is season three. And, I think all the avid Crown-watchers would agree, Claire Foy did an excellent job.

It is not known what Smith was paid for the series. Smith did not receive any award season recognition for his work as Prince Philip. Mackie said the pay gap would be closed with the forthcoming third season, promising that "going forward, no one gets paid more than the queen".

Neither Foy nor Smith have commented on the recent revelations and there's every possibility that they were unaware of what went in each other's pockets anyway.

In January, there was controversy after reports surfaced that Michelle Williams received less than 1% of Mark Wahlberg's paycheck for reshoots on their film, "All the Money in the World".
