Played by Richard Madden

Dreading a lifetime spent working behind a desk, Bill Haskell sets out to carve a place for himself in the booming times of the Klondike Gold Rush. He and his best friend, Byron Epstein, leave New York City and make the months-long journey to Dawson City and the gold fields of the Klondike. Handsome, intelligent and ambitious, Bill catches the attention of Belinda Mulrooney, one of Dawson’s most prominent figures. After some early trouble in town, he stakes his claim out on the creeks and sets about the business of mining gold. It isn’t long before Bill becomes consumed with finding gold and leverages everything he owns on the promise of a pay streak. He soon realizes that only a lucky few will strike it rich and as winter sets in, those lucky few become prey for the unlucky. To survive, Bill must fight desperate men, his own lust for revenge and the mighty, unforgiving Klondike.
