‘The Crown’ producers are sorry for paying Claire Foy less than Matt Smith

The producers of The Crown are saying sorry to both Claire Foy and Matt Smith, after the two actors found themselves in the headlines last week over a gender pay scandal.

During the INTV Conference in Jerusalem, Suzanne Mackie and Andy Harries, producers of the Netflix drama, revealed that Foy was paid less for her role as Queen Elizabeth II than her male counterpart, Smith, who portrayed Prince Philip.
