Netflix's The Crown Paid Queen Elizabeth Less Than Prince Philip

Netflix's The Crown Paid Queen Elizabeth Less Than Prince Philip”

In 2017, Foy won best lead actress in a drama at the Golden Globes, and she was nominated for the same honor in 2018.

Variety released information that reveals that Netflix's The Crown paid Doctor Who actor Matt Smith more than Claire Foy, who plays the titular representation of The Crown, Elizabeth II.

They admitted that he did make more due to his Doctor Who fame, according to Variety.

While "The Crown's" first two seasons featured a pay gap between Foy and Smith, Mackie assured the audience at INTV that the gap would no longer be in effect as the show moves into Season 3.

It should be noted that Claire Foy will not get the chance to earn a fairer paycheck on The Crown since every role is being recast for the period drama's third season, which will begin filming in July and jump ahead to the 1970s.

Suzanne Mackie, creative director of Left Bank Pictures, which produced the Netflix series, added: "Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen". A replacement for Smith's role as Prince Philip has not been announced yet.

Moving forward, Queen Elizabeth will be played by Olivia Colman, an established television and film actress who even has experience playing the same queen (2012's Hyde Park on Hudson). However, this isn't a surprising reveal as Hollywood has consistently been failing women for years. 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.

Foy was paid an estimated $40,000 per episode ($800,000 in total for 20 episodes), while the first two seasons of The Crown cost Netflix around $130 million. This Is Us star Chrissy Metz also took in $40,000 per episode during the show's rookie run, though that was for 18 episodes, while The Crown is composed of 10-episode seasons.
