Hugh Laurie to Replace Matt Smith as Prince Philip on 'The Crown'

The Crown's Claire Foy was paid less than her co-star Matt Smith

"The natural end (of the series) would be when the crown passes", Harries said, adding, "If the Queen is still around we could go further". Sure, we've got a female Doctor now, but when Matt Smith was cast, Dr Who had essentially been a long-running sausage-fest.

The Crown's Claire Foy was paid less than her co-star Matt Smith, it has been revealed.

And Foy is the one who took home the awards: She won a Golden Globe and two Screen Actors Guild awards for best actress, and was nominated for an Emmy and for BAFTA awards.

Now that Broadcom has withdrawn its offer, and its nominated directors, it remains to be seen what's going to happen next. The Presidential order is seen as a move to shelter United States companies from foreign competition.

Foy played Queen Elizabeth II during her time on the show.

Even royals, it seems, may suffer from the gender pay gap.

"Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen", executive producer Suzanne Mackie vowed at the conference, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Vertonghen, however, used Barcelona as an example of how a side can enjoy success while still playing in a positive manner. Chiellini claimed that Tottenham have a history of mental weakness in important games: "It's the history of Tottenham".

If you thought the most valuable person in The Crown would be the person who wears the crown, think again - producers have revealed that Doctor Who star Matt Smith was actually paid more for the Netflix series than co-star Claire Foy. But Foy was hardly an unknown herself coming into "The Crown": She co-starred in the NBC pirate drama "Crossbones" and played Anne Boleyn alongside Damian Lewis and Mark Rylance in PBS' acclaimed Henry VIII miniseries "Wolf Hall". Foy not getting equal pay on a show where her character and Smith's are constantly fighting about him feeling emasculated by her power is so deliciously poetic I could nearly laugh.

While it's nice that producers promise to pay future actors who play the queen on The Crown more than anyone else, where does that leave Foy?

Wahlberg topped the list past year with $68 million while the highest-earning actress, Emma Stone, made $26 million, Vanity Fair reported.

But the onus is on politicians who space public opinion to some extent, words once said can't be taken back. "I was not accorded an opportunity to explain the context and the content of my speech", he said.

Foy's agent did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Wednesday.
