Claire Foy, Queen Isabel in ' The Crown ', charged less than Matt Smith

The British Crown also does not get rid of wage gap. At least in fiction. At a conference on television in Jerusalem, producers of British series The Crown were asked if actress Claire Foy, who has given life to Queen Isabel II during first two seasons of series, charged same as actor Matt Smith , in charge of interpreting Prince Felipe of Edinburgh. "The producers were aware that Smith was gaining more by his reputation for Doctor who, but would rectify in future," replied executive producer Suzanne Mackie to question. "Since n, no one charges more than Queen," he added about Netflix series.

While Matt Smith came to series after being protagonist during four seasons of British television classic which is Doctor who, his roommate and wife in fiction, despite having an important career in television and cinema , was less known than him. However, in fiction his role as Queen of England had much more weight, as Crown counts reign of current British monarch.

The Crown is one of most expensive television fictions in history. Although re are no official figures on ir budget, it is estimated that each chapter of first season cost about 7 million dollars.

It is not first time that wage inequalities have been known in television world. Ellen Pompeo, protagonist of Grey's Anatomy, recently revealed his struggle for what he believed he "deserved." In 2016, Robin Wright also told how he came to give an ultimatum to those responsible for House of Cards so that his salary was equated to that of her husband in fiction, interpreted by Kevin Spacey. The request was accepted.

The third season of Crown, whose filming will begin in July, is still completing its cast, as main players will change to reflect passage of time in characters. In this way, next two deliveries will feature Olivia Colman in role of Queen Isabel II, while Helena Bonham-Carter is responsible for giving life to Princess Margarita, a role that Vanessa Kirby played before. It has not yet been officially announced who will be in charge of interpreting Prince Felipe in next two seasons, but some media suggest that it could be actor Hugh Laurie, known for his role in House.
