Matt Smith Negotiated a Better Deal Than Claire Foy on 'the Crown'

Claire Foy Got Paid LESS Than Matt Smith For The Crown
However, I would like to state for the record that her getting paid less than Matt Smith is bullshit of the highest order. Sure, we've got a female Doctor now, but when Matt Smith was cast, Dr Who had essentially been a long-running sausage-fest.
But she quickly became a star after she was cast as the young queen, earning a best actress Golden Globe for the first season and a Golden Globe nomination in the same category for the second season.
Foy earned multiple prizes for her performance, including BAFTA's British artist of the year, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and a Golden Globe.
The producers of hit TV series The Crown have confirmed Helena Bonham Carter will be joining Olivia Colman for the third season of the show.
Claire played the lead role of Queen Elizabeth in the hit Netflix series, while Matt played her on-screen husband, Prince Phillip, otherwise known as the Duke of Edinburgh.
However, even if the pay gap is remedied in future seasons, it won't benefit Foy, whose work on the series is over.
Producers revealed the disappointing news at an INTV Conference in Jerusalem on Tuesday, according to Variety. But Foy was hardly an unknown herself coming into "The Crown": She co-starred in the NBC pirate drama "Crossbones" and played Anne Boleyn alongside Damian Lewis and Mark Rylance in PBS' acclaimed Henry VIII miniseries "Wolf Hall". Mackie added, "Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen".
Smith, 35, was not similarly honoured.
Wahlberg topped the list a year ago with $68 million while the highest-earning actress, Emma Stone, made $26 million, Vanity Fair reported.
At this time, representatives for Foy and Smith have not commented while Netflix declined to address the shocking pay discrepancy.
Mark Wahlberg made news earlier this year when it was revealed that he was paid $1.5 million United States for reshoots on movie All the Money in the World, while co-star Michelle Williams received $1,000 US.

Google Assistant Now Available on iPads
However, for users who like the Google Assistant over Apple's Siri, the launch on iPad will be a welcome move. More screen real estate simply means that you don't have to exit one app just to hop into Google Assistant .
