Claire Foy not crowned with highest pay

  • “No one gets paid more than the Queen,” say The Crown makers after Matt Smith earns more than Claire Foy

While Smith certainly had more star power when he was cast - having previously starred in United Kingdom series Doctor Who - Foy's quickly rose over the span of the first season.

Ms Suzanne Mackie, one of the show's producers, told the Jerusalem audience the pay difference was being resolved for the third season, but that will not benefit Foy.

"Going forward, no-one gets paid more than the Queen", she said, reports Variety. "The archaic system that actors get paid more because they are more well known at start of a series has GOT to change".

And Foy is the one who took home the awards: She won a Golden Globe and two Screen Actors Guild awards for best actress, and was nominated for an Emmy and for BAFTA awards.

Abe was meeting South Korean National Intelligence Service chief Suh Hoon to discuss upcoming talks with North Korea . Kono also said Japan would be willing to provide money for International Atomic Energy Agency inspections if needed.

As for why there was a disparity in the first place, the "producers acknowledged that [Smith] did make more due to his Doctor Who fame, but that they would rectify that for the future".

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.

Representatives for Foy and Smith did not return requests for comment on Tuesday.

The Crown is one of the most expensive shows in television history, with an estimated budget of $7 million per episode. And in season three, Broadchurch star Olivia Colman will be taking on the role. 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. Whilst, with other TV shows, it might be possible to spin a tale about the male character actually being the more significant and demanding role, in this case, feminists have been able to adopt the straightforward argument that, "She was The Crown".
