Gillian opened up more about the topic with The Daily Beast saying she thinks it’s “important that [the issue] gets heard and voiced. It was shocking to me, given all the work that I had done in the past to get us to be paid fairly. I worked really hard toward that and finally got somewhere with it.”

Although she eventually took home the same amount as David she said, “It is…sad. It is sad.”
