Claire Foy paid less than co-star on "The Crown"

Claire Foy Got Paid LESS Than Matt Smith For The Crown

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

Trade publication Variety quoted producer Suzanne Mackie as confirming Foy was paid less than Matt Smith, who played Prince Philip in two seasons of the series.

But still, it's a move in the right direction: 'Going forward, no-one gets paid more than the Queen'.

Colman will replace Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II, while Bonham Carter will portray the royal sister, Princess Margaret. "However, Hollywood and London may have to reassess whether there should be some kind of SAG pay scale".

Over the last three years, Microsoft has more than doubled the number of Azure regions available. The centers will be located in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

And Foy is the one who took home the awards: She won a Golden Globe and two Screen Actors Guild awards for best actress, and was nominated for an Emmy and for BAFTA awards. Foy, 33, whose only major acting credit prior to The Crown was a role in BBC mini series Wolf Hall, pulled in $40,000 per episode, according to Variety.

The actress has won the hearts of many for her Golden Globe-winning role, however, fans were highly disappointed to hear that she was paid less than her co-star Matt Smith.

We need to use the Claire Foy case to think about the universal implications of the pay gap, and the unsafe, roundabout ways in which it might be justified. Smith did not receive any award season recognition for his work as Prince Philip.

Oil sinks toward $60 as inventory, production gains weigh
OPEC trimmed its 2018 demand forecast for its own crude by 250,000 bpd to 32.61 million bpd, the fourth consecutive decline. Weekly U.S. crude production figures will be published by the Energy Information Administration (EIA) later on Wednesday.

If we base actors' salaries on their past roles, rather than the demands of their current ones, men will still, invariably, come up trumps.

Neither Foy nor Smith have commented on the recent revelations and there's every possibility that they were unaware of what went in each other's pockets anyway. The Crown costs $7 (€5.6) million an episode to produce. She also appeared on screen more than her TV husband, in scenes surrounding to the Queen's early days as the monarch.
