Even if we choose to believe that Matt Smith's pay packet had everything to do with his resume and nothing to do with his gender, the system of paying actors based on their previous roles will continue to perpetuate gender inequality, whether or not this is the intention.

Foy and Matt Smith have played Elizabeth and her husband Prince Philip for two seasons.

The part has earned her a host of award season nominations, including at the BAFTAs, Golden Globes, Emmys and Screen Actors Guild awards.

Smith, 35, was not similarly honoured.

Siemian, Lynch and Chad Kelly, a seventh-rounder past year who sat out his rookie season with injuries, remain on the roster. Cousins passed for at least 4,000 yards and 25 touchdowns in each of the past three seasons for the Washington Redskins.

Producers point to Smith's starring role in "Doctor Who" - he played the sci-fi hit's Eleventh Doctor from 2010 to 2014 - as the reason for him making more than Foy. They did not give details of the gap.

But Foy won't be around to enjoy it. Starting next season, a new cast will be playing "The Crown's" lead characters, with Olivia Colman taking over for Foy as Queen Elizabeth. "Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen", she said.

Sadly however, the move won't benefit Claire herself, as the second season of the Netflix show was her last. The actor who will play Philip hasn't been announced yet.

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

It was also confirmed during the event in Jerusalem that each episode in the first two seasons of the drama cost around £5 million (€5.6 million).

The ongoing disparity between men and women is reflected in annual lists published by Forbes magazine.

They did not reveal either salary - Foy's was put at $40,000 an episode by Variety a year ago - 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.
