'The Crown' Announces Salary Parity After Claire Foy Revealed to Earn Less Than Matt Smith

'The Crown' Announces Salary Parity After Claire Foy Revealed to Earn Less Than Matt Smith

The Crown is adjusting the pay of its stars.

Following the revelation that Matt Smith earned more than Claire Foy during the first two seasons of the hit show, producers announced on Tuesday (March 13) that they have adjusted their compensation rates.

“Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen,” executive producer Suzanne Mackie said at a conference in Israel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

She also acknowledged that Matt‘s experience on Doctor Who is what fueled the initial salary disparity.

New actors are being brought in to replace both Claire and Matt‘s roles for the third and fourth seasons: Olivia Colman will take over for Claire as Queen Elizabeth, while the new Prince Philip has yet to be announced.

    I don’t want to be mean but her filmography leading to The Crown does not really include international titles that would make her internationally recognised. It’s an undeniable fact that she was far less popular than Smith (especially given his popularity in social media, on platforms such as tumblr etc.) so I doubt it’s a gender issue here.

    But they should be paid after the amount of work they do, and Claire Foy has without a doubt more scenes than Matt SMith. A total joke that he earned more than her, tbh!
    And it would never be the other way around, if Claire was more famous, but had less scenes.

    How does that explain her getting paid less for the second season after winning a Globe and gaining a huge fanbase? Why did they continue to pay her less? Especially considering her performance was one of – if not THE – selling points?

    I would agree. Going in, he could command more money but it’s the second season and she has proven ability and worth.
