Netflix's The Crown Paid Queen Elizabeth Less Than Prince Philip

Netflix seems to have learned this too late, however, as it was revealed on Tuesday that lead actress Claire Foy made less than co-star Matt Smith for her work on the show.

The salary differences between the two actors is perhaps ironic due to Queen Elizabeth's sizable net worth and influence compared to her husband, Prince Philip.

Matt Smith is more famous because of his run in Doctor Who, but Claire Foy wasn't exactly some unknown actress.

The Voice beats American Idol in first head-to-head battle
Perry's Idol antics didn't stop there as her male co-judges joked throughout the show that Perry was looking for a date. What's more, that was about the same as last week when they didn't have another singing show to compete with.

"Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen", Left Bank creative director and exec producer Suzanne Mackie said at the INTV Conference in Jerusalem.

Good! Though not the best timing for Foy - as The Crown is recasting nearly its entire lineup of actors for seasons three and four, which take place in a later decade.

Olivia Colman will play the Queen, while the role of Philip has not yet been announced. However, Foy became a big-time star in her own right during the first season of The Crown, earning a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actor's Guild Award, both for best actress. Helena Bonham Carter takes over for Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret as new characters - including Princess Diana - will be introduced.

Bradford enters his age-31 campaign and arguably has the highest upside of any of the available veterans this offseason. The Cardinals are set to sign former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford , according to multiple reports Tuesday.

"Seasons 3 and 4 will be the test of whether the show really has the legs to survive", said Harries. That's a small fraction of the show's production budget of around $7 million per episode for its first two seasons, serving as one of the most expensive television series on air, according to Variety. She was nominated for an Emmy for her role in 2017. The success carried on into the second season, with Foy bringing home another SAG Award and earning another Golden Globe nomination.

Salary parity has become a larger part of the conversation as the Time's Up movement continues to gather steam, emboldening women to speak up about subjects, like money, that were once considered taboo. USA Today reported that Williams earned just $80 a day, adding up to less than $1,000, while Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million total.
