Claire Foy was paid less than Matt Smith for The Crown

Two producers on Netflix's The Crown revealed Tuesday that Matt Smith made more than Claire Foy for the first two seasons of the show. The pair admitted that Smith made more due to his "Doctor Who" fame, insisting that the inequity would be amended in the future.

Though The Crown was Foy's breakout role and Smith was more of a known commodity, especially in the United States, the actress did headline the series as the main character. Foy received high praise for her portrayal of the restrained monarch, in which she nailed everything from the queen's posh accent to her physical poise.

Even Queen Elizabeth herself, the human embodiment of poise and restraint, would likely find herself angry to discover that the actress who plays her on Netflix's The Crown earned less than her male counterpart during the first two seasons of the critically-acclaimed period drama.

For it's third season, the show is also facing recasting almost its entire lineup of actors, something few series have done: Olivia Colman will step in as the Queen, replacing Emmy nominee Claire Foy; Helena Bonham-Carter will play Princess Margaret. Olivia Coleman ("Broadchurch") will replace Foy as Queen Elizabeth.

Without Burton's contributions, though, Philadelphia might not have been in the proper situation. Robinson has 202 catches for 2,848 yards and 22 touchdowns in 43 games in Jacksonville.

Despite winning a Golden Globe for her performance, Foy's salary was lower than that of Matt Smith as the young Duke of Edinburgh. The success carried on into the second season, with Foy bringing home another SAG Award and earning another Golden Globe nomination.

While the series will lose Foy and Smith, they've picked up Helena Bonham Carter to play Princess Margaret.

But one of the producers, Susan Mackie, said that The Crown planned to fix this going forward. "You'll forget all about me and the rest of the cast. It's daunting but exciting and I hope it'll keep the series fresh and really of interest to people". USA Today reported that Williams earned just $80 a day, adding up to less than $1,000, while Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million total.
