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


Actors Claire Foy, who plays Queen Elizabeth II, and Matt Smith who plays Philip Duke of Edinburgh, attend the premiere of "The Crown" Season 2 in London, Britain, November 21, 2017.

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

"Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen", said Mackie, according to the outlet.Last year, Variety reported that Foy was paid about $40,000 per episode.

They did not reveal either salary - Foy's was put at $40,000 an episode by Variety previous year - but told a panel event in Jerusalem that Smith's 2010-2013 starring role on the BBC's "Doctor Who" had been the decisive factor.

Netflix seems to have learned this too late, however, as it was revealed on Tuesday that lead actress Claire Foy made less than co-star Matt Smith for her work on the show.

They say the pay disparity was due to Dan's experience and profile working as Doctor Who - but promise it will not happen again. Foy was mostly unknown when she was cast and became a breakout actress because of the show's success. Foy played Queen Elizabeth II for the 1950s and 1960s and the producers have now cast an older actress, fellow Brit Olivia Coleman, who will step into the role as the show moves into the 1970s.

The trio claimed Smith earned more because he was a bigger global draw thanks to his "Dr".

Who would've thought that a prince would get paid more than a queen? It's common knowledge that Netflix sunk an extraordinary amount of money into The Crown-it's one of the most expensive shows ever, with a budget of $7 million per episode-which makes it feel all the more egregious that Foy got the short shrift here.

But how do you continue to justify it for a second season?
