While Smith was an established lead having been the 11th Doctor on BBC’s Doctor Who, the show is centered on Foy’s character, Queen Elizabeth II, who is still the highest ranking sovereign in the UK.

The Crown producers Suzanne Mackie and Andy Harries on Tuesday also promised pay equity on the show from now on. “Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen,” Mackie said. However, that means nothing for Foy, who is being replaced by Olivia Colman in Season 3 of the Netflix series.
