In the show's next season, Elizabeth will be played by Broadchurch star Olivia Colman.

"So I'll just learn the lines and try and copy exactly what they do", Olivia explained.

Netflix recently revealed that Foy was paid less than her onscreen husband for the first two seasons of the show.

The weather service said the best chance for stronger storms will come on Sunday night , with heavy rain being the main threat. Airline passengers should expect flight delays to increase as next week progresses with possible flight cancellations.

In response, the series' producers, Suzanne Mackie and Andy Harries, acknowledged the 35-year-old male English actor was paid more owing to his Doctor Who fame, but said the practice would be rectified in the future, according to the USA entertainment magazine Variety.

Despite the fact that Claire played the lead and won a Golden Globe for her performance, she was paid less than her male co-star - due to Matt Smith's Dr Who fame. (When Smith first started on "Doctor Who" almost 10 years ago, he signed a three-year, £600,000 contract - just over $1 million in Canadian dollars.) "The Crown", one of the most expensive TV shows in history, had an approximate budget of US$7 million an episode.

The Trade publication Variety quoted producer Suzanne Mackie as confirming that Foy was paid less than Matt Smith, who played Prince Philip in two seasons of the series. Executive producer Susie Mackie has confirmed reports suggesting Helena Bonham Carter will play the Queen's late sister, Princess Margaret, in season three of The Crown.

Exactly how good a pro wrestler Rousey is at this point is being somewhat hidden from the fans, and understandably so. The worst thing that will happen is I'll look stupid, which is not the worst thing that could really happen.

The producers justify the initial pay gap because of Smith's popularity but say they plan to bring Foy's salary up to standards.

She said the gap would be closed with the forthcoming third series, saying "going forward, no one gets paid more than the queen".

One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.
