"The Crown" chronicles Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the present day.

Smith's starring role on Doctor Who earned him a higher salary for the show, which reportedly had a budget of £100m, producers said.

In the latest gender pay gap scandal, it has been revealed that The Crown actor Claire Foy was paid less than her co-star Matt Smith for both the first and second series of the Netflix show.

"The Crown", which costs $7 million an episode to produce, is replacing its leads for the start of filming in July, with Olivia Colman stepping in as the queen and an actor to replace Smith not yet announced.

Executive producers confirmed Tuesday at the INTV Conference in Jerusalem that Foy, who plays Queen Elizabeth II, earned less than Smith, who portrays Prince Philip, according to The New York Times.

This will come as a huge shock for fans of the show as Foy has been nominated for and won countless roles for her awesome acting as the Queen.

They did not reveal either salary - Foy's was put at $40,000 an episode by Variety previous year - but told a panel event in Jerusalem that Smith's 2010-2013 starring role on the BBC's "Doctor Who" had been the decisive factor.

Students across United States prepare for National School Walk Out Day
In Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Texas, some lawyers said they will provide free legal help to students who are punished. Students have also said they hope the movement sparks change on a local level with everyday security.

However, even if the pay gap is remedied in future seasons, it won't benefit Foy, whose work on the series is over.

The Crown has made Claire Foy British entertainment's newest darling.

But still, it's a move in the right direction: 'Going forward, no-one gets paid more than the Queen'. So, for that matter, has Smith, 35, and nearly the entire cast.

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

Representatives for Smith and Foy did not respond to CNN's multiple requests for comment.

In January, there was controversy after reports surfaced that Michelle Williams received less than 1% of Mark Wahlberg's paycheck for reshoots on their film, "All the Money in the World".
