“I’ve been in the entertainment industry for 22 years and have been in over 70 feature films and two TV shows.” Priyanka shared on stage, via THR. “But when I did citadelit was the first time in my career that I had pay parity.”
She continued, saying while laughing about it, it was “kind of crazy. I put in the same amount of investment and work, but I get paid a lot less. But the ease with which Amazon Studios said, ‘That’s what you deserve, you’re co-leads, that’s just fair,’ and I said, ‘You’re right, it’s fair.'”
Priyanka adding, “And I’m wondering, did that happen because there are very few female decision-makers in Hollywood? Would that have been a different conversation if a woman hadn’t made that decision? These are not conversations that just happened.”
She plays opposite Richard Madden in the upcoming series on Prime Video. Watch the trailer here!
