Charlotte ClearyPlayed by Frances O'Connor

Charlotte Cleary is a woman unto herself. Her husband might be Jarrod Slade (Iain Glen), media mogul, but Charlotte steadfastly refuses to allow her marriage to define her. She is a bright, educated woman — a doctor whose intelligence is outweighed only by an unwavering morality.

She married Slade for his quick laugh, his brilliance and his vast worldly knowledge. She is very much in love with her husband, though as the series progresses, there’s something that’s increasingly disconcerting about him, and in Season 2, Charlotte makes a series of discoveries – chief among them that her unborn baby carries traces of Hairy DNA, and that Slade has been experimenting with genetic manipulation of the Hairypeople.
