  • Matt Smith at 2018 SAG Awards

The actor, who played the Duke of Edinburgh in the Netflix drama opposite Foy's Queen Elizabeth II, said more needs to be done to create a level playing field.

The statement also made clear that Left Bank-not Netflix-is entirely "responsible for budgets and salaries; the actors are not aware of who gets what, and can not be held personally responsible for the pay of their colleagues".

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter at the premiere of his new biopic Mapplethorpe, Smith said Foy was one of his best friends and that she should be paid equally and fairly. There should be equality for all'. "I support her completely".

Following the outrage over the gender pay gap, Foy revealed that she has now had her "eyes opened" and plans to do more to ensure there is no sexism in the industry. And Left Bank Pictures, the production company behind The Crown, quickly issued a statement taking full responsibility for the disparity, vowing to vanquish any gap going forward.

Actors Claire Foy (L) and Matt Smith attend The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 7, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California. It may even be that Smith is simply referring to the fact that it has been brought to light, and that any future seasons will see the actress taking on the role of Queen Elizabeth II taking home the highest wage.

"Claire is one of my best friends, ' Smith told THR.com".

The company apologised to both Foy and Smith in a statement and said the actors "cannot be held personally responsible for the pay of their colleagues". It didn't help that the series was additionally one of the most expensive in television history and had a reported budget of $7 million per episode, presumably more than enough to pay its female star as much, if not more, than Smith. "But they've made amends and hopefully going forward it's not a problem".

After two seasons of brilliantly portraying Prince Philip on Netflix's The Crown, Matt Smith is handing over his title-and he couldn't be more excited about his replacement.

They admitted that Smith did make more due to his Doctor Who fame. While there will be equal pay moving forward, there are no plans to retroactively compensate Claire Foy, who played an integral role in the show's success.
