Claire Foy Talks 'The Crown' Pay Disparity — 'I'm Not Surprised People Went, "That's a Bit Odd"'

Just days after it was revealed that the The Crown's lead actress, Claire Foy, was paid less than her male counterpart, Matt Smith, for the series' first two seasons, the actress is speaking out about the headline-making story. "I'm surprised because I'm at the center of it, and anything that I’m at the center of like that is very very odd, and feels very very out of ordinary," Claire told Entertainment Weekly. "But I’m not [surprised about the interest in the story] in the sense that it was a female-led drama. I’m not surprised that people saw [the story] and went, 'Oh, that’s a bit odd.' But I know that Matt feels the same that I do, that it’s odd to find yourself at the center [of a story] that you didn’t particularly ask for," she continued. A few days ago, The Crown's producers publicly apologized to Claire and Matt for their pay disparity.

Avengers 4 to Revisit Civil War Opening Scene?
While production on Avengers 4 will carry over into the new year, we reported last week that Paul Bettany has wrapped on the movie. Now it seems that another integral part of the production has wrapped. Heidi Moneymaker, who is Scarlett Johansson's stunt double on the set, shared an Instagram photo earlier this week that revealed she has also wrapped.

Luther’s Neil Cross Crafting Talented Mr. Ripley Series

After nailing a fourth season of his gritty, Idris Elba-powered detective series Luther, Neil Cross has been tapped to adapt Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Talented Mr. Ripley (and the other books in that series, which spans five novels) for the small screen.

Endemol Shine Studios, Entertainment 360, and Diogenes are behind the show, which had been hunting for a writer ever since the studios struck a deal with the Highsmith estate to build a TV property around the Tom Ripley character last year. Cross is a great get for the project; though his ventures outside of Luther, including NBC’s mediocre pirate show Crossbones, haven’t been nearly as well-received, the guy knows how to craft strong male protagonists, and Ripley certainly fits the bill.

Highsmith’s 1950s-set novels all revolved around Ripley, a con artist and serial killer whose lack of morality and personal greed often lead him to commit heinous acts.

Why 'Luther' Creator Neil Cross Can't Say Goodbye to Idris Elba's 'National Treasure' of a Detective

  • Indiewire
Neil Cross' work as a writer for television includes several episodes of "Spooks" and "Doctor Who," as well as the NBC pirate drama "Crossbones," but by and large, the British native is best known for "Luther," the Idris Elba-starring detective drama that became an international success, racking up an impressive number of Emmy nominations in America as a BBC America miniseries. Here's an interesting twist, though: Cross may be British, but he no longer lives in Britain. As he put it in a recent phone interview with Indiewire, "My dirty little secret is that I actually live in New Zealand." According to him, though, that's an essential aspect to his process in writing the drama, which digs into the complicated psychology of not just Detective John Luther, but the dark and complicated London where he lives. Cross also spoke about the original industry trends that led the BBC
