Claire Foy reportedly paid less than male co - star LONDON — " The Crown " focuses on the life of Queen Elizabeth II, but a new report claims that the actress in the lead role did not make the biggest paycheck.

Foy , who starred as the Queen in hit series, earned less than Matt Smith who played Prince Philip.

LONDON - A producer of hit royal drama "The Crown" says Claire Foy, who played the central role of Queen Elizabeth II, was paid less than her on-screen husband.

The Netflix series traces Elizabeth's journey from princess to queen, beginning in the 1950s.

Trade publication Variety quoted producer Suzanne Mackie as confirming Foy was paid less than Matt Smith, who played Prince Philip in two seasons of the series. She made the reported comment at an industry event in Jerusalem.

She said this was because Smith was better-known after starring in sci-fi series "Doctor Who." Mackie said the gap would be closed with the forthcoming third series, saying "going forward, no one gets paid more than the queen."
