Left Bank Productions said it supports “the conversation which is rightly being played out across society and we are absolutely united with the fight for fair pay, free of gender bias, and for a re-balancing of the industry’s treatment of women, both those in front of the camera and for those behind the scenes.”
At the time, the company said it planned to enter into “talks” with the U.K. arm of Time’s Up and ERA 50:50, a British movement of actors and actresses campaigning for gender equality on British television and stage, “to make our contribution to the debate.”
New actors are set to take over the roles played by Foy and Smith in the upcoming third and fourth seasons of “The Crown,” set in the royal couple’s later years.
CNN has reached out to Foy, Smith and Left Bank Productions for comment.
