Abbie Cornish steps into the boots of the “richest woman in Klondike” for Discovery’s first scripted miniseries, the three-part period drama, “Klondike.”
“It’s all real,” Cornish told TheWrap. “Belinda Mulrooney had the most real estate of anyone else in Dawson City. She ran the lumber mill and the loan shop.”
Instead of digging for gold herself, Mulrooney made it her business to provide items and services that the prospectors would need. That was the key to her success. She would go on to build a restaurant, a roadhouse and a hotel in Dawson City.
