Ruth Wilson is certain she was paid less than Dominic West for 'The Affair'



"I definitely get less money than a male in my situation would. Definitely."

"Yeah [I think I was paid less than West] I think so. Certainly when I signed up to that project, I would have got paid less. Then they [the producers] might argue, 'Well, he's already done a major American TV show [The Wire] so he's already got a level.'"

"But even after a Golden Globe I'm not going to be on parity. So he definitely gets more than me. I mean, I don't know what the figure is, but I'm sure he does."

"It's quite hard to bring that up in a way. But it needs to be an open discussion and men need to help us out. I don't want more money, I just want equal money. Which means men have to take less."
