Netflix pays its queen less than her consort on 'The Crown'

Netflix pays its queen less than her consort on 'The Crown'

Producers of the show revealed on Tuesday that Matt Smith, who played Prince Philip in the first two seasons, earned significantly more than Foy, who played a young Queen Elizabeth II.

"Going forward, no-one gets paid more than the queen", Mackie said, as reported by Variety and The Sydney Morning Herald.

The producers insisted the pay discrepancy would be changed for future seasons - however, that will be of little consolation to Foy, who will no longer star in the show.

Apparently, not even the queen is immune to the gender wage gap.

Producers Suzanne Mackie, Andy Harries and Martin Childs acknowledged the pay disparity at the INTV Conference in Jerusalem, noting that Foy made less than Smith, who plays Prince Philip, despite the fact that she's the star of the Netflix drama, Variety reports.

Unfortunately for Foy, she won't be the one paid more.

For comparison, Chrissy Metz was reportedly paid $40,000 per episode for the acclaimed NBC drama "This Is Us", which has had 18 episodes per season.

Foy, 33, won a Golden Globe and two Screen Actors Guild awards for her nuanced portrayal of Britain's monarch in the 1950s and 1960s.

According to Vanity Fair, "The Crown" is one of television's most expensive shows with a per-episode budget of at least $7 million. "Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen", she said. Meanwhile, Foy hadn't had a high-profile role before The Crown.

In response, the series' producers, Suzanne Mackie and Andy Harries, acknowledged the 35-year-old male English actor was paid more owing to his Doctor Who fame, but said the practice would be rectified in the future, according to U.S. entertainment magazine Variety.

If there is a lesson to take away from the first two seasons of The Crown, it is that no sane person would dare cross Queen Elizabeth II.
