The Qualley siblings grew up on a ranch near Missoula, Montana, before relocating to Asheville, North Carolina, when Margaret was four years old. Qualley’s parents divorced when she was five years old, and she shared her time between them after that.
Her parents lived only 3 miles separated for many years. Her and MacDowell’s family home is in North Carolina, in which they have extended relatives.
Qualley as well as her sister have both been debutantes as teenagers formative years in Asheville, North Carolina, as well as Qualley started her career there at Bal des débutantes in Paris. She moved away from home at the age of 14 to study dance there at North Carolina School of the Arts.

Qualley, meanwhile, opted to stop dancing there at age of 16 after receiving an opportunity to work as an apprentice well with North Carolina Dance Theater.
She started working as just a model in order to remain in New York. Qualley describes this time period as follows: “‘Look, I don’t believe I want to be a dancer any longer, therefore I’m going to stop ballet and remain here,’ I wrote to my mother. Next week, I’ll have this and this revenue.’ Because I was so meticulous, I lay things up in such a way that she couldn’t say no.” Later, Qualley shifted her concentration to acting and enrolled in the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art’s summer programme in London. Qualley attended New York University for a semester before leaving to pursue acting gigs.
