Even Queen Elizabeth herself, the human embodiment of poise and restraint, would likely find herself angry to discover that the actress who plays her on Netflix's The Crown earned less than her male counterpart during the first two seasons of the critically-acclaimed period drama.

Matt Smith's portrayal of a young Duke of Edinburgh earned him more than Foy's Golden Globe-winning performance as Queen Elizabeth in the Netflix drama.

Producers Suzanne Mackie and Andy Harries admitted at the INTV Conference in Jerusalem that Smith had a larger salary on "The Crown" because of his popularity from his run on "Doctor Who".

She had significantly more screen time in the biopic, which centered around the Monarch.

And in 2011, a search of his Bergenfield recording studio turned up two loaded 9mm handguns and 17 bags of suspected marijuana. A TSA agent spotted what looked like a firearm in James' bag and called Port Authority police.


Producers of the Netflix show have revealed the pay gap and put it down to the fact that Matt Smith was more famous, a wrong that will apparently be rectified going forward.

The donation came as he faced intense scrutiny when it was reported Williams received less than 1,000 dollars (£720).

It's not like Claire Foy had no experience - she was also nominated for several awards for "Wolf Hall" - but she wasn't as high profile as Matt Smith. Prior to landing his Prince Philip role, Matt played The Doctor on the BBC's Doctor Who from 2010 until 2014. While it was not immediately clear how much Smith was paid, Foy reportedly earned around $40,000 per episode of The Crown, according to a 2017 report from Variety. Foy played Queen Elizabeth II for the 1950s and 1960s and the producers have now cast an older actress, fellow Brit Olivia Coleman, who will step into the role as the show moves into the 1970s. Per a Variety report from past year, Foy earned an estimated $40,000 per episode.
