Hugh Laurie to Replace Matt Smith as Prince Philip on 'The Crown'


The confirmed but figureless pay gap was revealed by show producers Suzanne Mackie and Andy Harries during a discussion about "The Crown" at the INTV Conference in Jerusalem, In Style magazine reported. Mackie said the gap would be closed with the forthcoming third series, saying "going forward, no one gets paid more than the queen".

Claire Foy was paid less than her co-star Matt Smith in Netflix drama "The Crown", despite having more screen time. "However, Hollywood and London may have to reassess whether there should be some kind of SAG pay scale". While it has not yet been disclosed exactly how much Smith was paid, Foy earned $40,000 per episode of The Crown.

The producers claim that rather than a gender issue, the pay gap came as Claire was an unknown actress when she accepted the lead role, whereas 35-year-old Matt had achieved global success for starring as the titular character in the long running sci-fi hit "Doctor Who" from 2009 to 2013. Smith played a pivotal role as Prince Philip, but Foy as Queen Elizabeth was the main focus of the series.

No salaries have been revealed but Variety reported that Foy's was earning $40,000 (€32,000) an episode previous year. So it makes the decision to pay her less than Matt likely all the more confusing.

Fans of the show have taken to social media to vent their disappointment over the revelation since news broke.
