  • What Netflix is looking for in a series

When you see Crown for first time re is one thing that is clear from first scene: undisputed protagonist of plot is Queen Elizabeth II, a character that gives life to actress Claire Foy. With this first clear point anyone thinks that, being Queen, Foy would have to be best paid of cast, or at least charge same as Matt Smith, co-star, which embodies Prince Felipe of Edinburgh. The surprise was capitalized when producers of series revealed that she had won less than her partner, specifically 13,500 euros less per chapter. A mistake that Netflix, a producer of fiction, seems to want to amend compensation to actress with 200,000 pounds, about 225,000 euros.

The actress charged 29,000 pounds for each of 20 chapters that, for moment, has series, a figure considerably lower than 39,000 that was bagged his partner Matt Smith. The producers of Netflix series, one of most expensive in history, will ensure that actor had claimed more due to his greatest television fame to have been protagonist during four seasons of Doctor Who, a classic of British television. Finally, producers were obliged to apologise.

It is not first time that wage inequalities have been known in television world. Ellen Pompeo, protagonist of Grey's Anatomy, revealed a few months ago 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.

One of few actresses who seems to get rid of wage gap in audiovisual world is Millie Bobby Brown, one of protagonists of stranger things. The introverted and strange eleven has achieved, at only 14 years, to break wage gap that has historically burdened women. As pointed last month American portal TMZ British actress will pocket about 350,000 dollars for each of episodes of new season of success of Netflix. In this way, interpreter will charge about 100,000, 000 more per episode than Gaten Matarazzo, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb Mclaughlin, Noah Schnapp, his co-workers.
