Online Petition Calls On Matt Smith to Donate Pay Disparity from THE CROWN
The petition, which has already gathered some 24,000 signatures, is a movement started in response to the news that Smith earned more than his award-winning Crown co-star Claire Foy.
News of the pay gap broke last week, with the show's creators admitting that Smith earned more than his co-star based on his popularity from his three-season run as the title player on the series Doctor Who.
A rep for the show announced the production's intent to right the pay gap, stating, "Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen."
