Claire Foy was paid less than Matt Smith for 'The Crown'

Netflix The Crown Pay Claire Foy Matt Smith

Netflix The Crown Pay Claire Foy Matt Smith

She was so impressive that she won a Golden Globe for her performance in 2017, along with an Emmy nod, and earned another Golden Globe nomination this past year.

Appearing at a conference in Israel on Tuesday, producers revealed that star Claire Foy earned less than male co-star Matt Smith for the first two seasons of the Netflix hit. "Who" on television - one of Britain's most popular shows, the producers said.

Producers Suzanne Mackie and Andy Harries acknowledged to United States news outlet Variety that Smith's previous starring role in Doctor Who meant he was paid more than Foy - who had appeared in a number of smaller British dramas including the BBC's Wolf Hall prior to The Crown. Olivia Colman (Golden Globe victor for AMC's The Night Manager) will take over for Foy as Queen Elizabeth, while the new Prince Philip has yet to be cast. During the interview, "The Crown" producers said that Matt Smith, who played Prince Philip, was paid more than Claire Foy, who played Queen Elizabeth, due to his existing fame playing "Doctor Who".

Foy, however, will not be reprising her role as Queen Elizabeth.

"Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen". The showrunners are expected to make more announcements soon concerning who will be cast in major roles.

That's good news for "Broadchurch" star Olivia Colman, who will take the reins from Foy as the show continues. The 96-year-old Prince Philip, the Queen's husband of 70 years, reportedly has a fraction of that net worth and recently retired from his royal position, no longer attending public events. Her turn in BBC's Wolf Hall earned her a BAFTA nomination, and the series as a whole was a massive critical and commercial success. That's a small fraction of the show's production budget of around $7 million per episode for its first two seasons, serving as one of the most expensive television series on air, according to Variety.
