Claire Foy and Matt Smith may have been replaced for the next series of Royal family Netflix drama The Crown, but for them, it's not over yet.
Claire Foy has been given £200,000 in back pay following the pay gap controversy on Netflix show The Crown, according to reports.
Matt Smith has broken his silence on the pay disparity row on Netflix show The Crown, after it emerged he was being paid more than the show's star Claire Foy.
“You know gender pay gaps are a problem when even the Queen isn’t paid fairly,” say the organizers of a public petition calling on actor Matt Smith to donate the difference between his and Claire Foy’s salary from “The Crown” to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund.
In spite of playing the lead role of Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown, the show's producers have admitted that Matt Smith earned more money than Wolf Hall star Claire Foy.
After making his name playing everyone’s favourite Time Lord in ‘Doctor Who’ Matt Smith is branching out into Hollywood, and if this clip from ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ is anything to go by, he has a bright future ahead of him. This exclusive clip from the film that hits UK cinemas on 11 February shows the buffoonish Collins declaring his love for Jane (Bella Heathcote), the eldest of the eligible Bennet sisters. Mrs. Bennet, the matriarch of the family played by Sally Phillips, explains that Jane is already betrothed to another, prompting an excellently befuddled response from the clergyman.
