Played by Abbie Cornish

Belinda Mulrooney knows that in 1897 the only place where a woman can make her mark and maintain her independence is in a town like Dawson City, a place so isolated and remote that gender is an afterthought to people in need of shelter and supplies to stay alive. A shrewd businesswoman, Belinda made it to Dawson early and began selling the goods she brought with her to the miners. With the money she made, she doubled down and began buying businesses, then real estate. By the time the Klondike Gold Rush was in full swing, she was set up nicely as the hotel, restaurant and sawmill magnate of Dawson. While building her dream property, The Fairview Hotel — soon to be largest and finest hotel in all of the Klondike — two men arrive in Dawson that upset her focus and her power – Bill Haskell and The Count.
