Childhood and youth: Montana - New York - Los AngelesWhen the popular Hollywood actress Andie MacDowell was pregnant with her third child, she had a feeling that a girl would be born. In the fall of 1994, it turned out that she was right. The charming baby was named Sarah Margaret.
Modeling businessA year later, the flexible and elegant Margaret began to take choreography courses at American Academy. According to Margaret, she loved dancing “on a spiritual level,” but it included exhausting work, strict discipline, diet, and the prospect of a short ballet career. Therefore, having got an eating disorder by the age of 16 (which she later managed to overcome), she decided not to accept the proposal to join the troupe of the North Carolina Dance Theater, but to stay in the Big Apple City and work as a model.
The girl had excellent appearance, having inherited “sincere” (according to journalists) eyes from her father and a “radiant” complexion from her mother, which, in conjunction with full lips and a nice gap between her front teeth, gave her a unique charm.
Spike Jonze’s promotional video for the Kenzo line, where Margaret took part, was very popular on the Internet. According to the plot, the girl performed by Margaret was tired of sitting and pretending that she was interested in listening to the official speech at a dinner party. She went to the entrance hall and started to dance crazily and ghastly to the track “Mutant Brain” by Ape Drums & Sam Spiegel (ft. Assassin), being affected, demonstrating motor convulsions, jumping, shooting with lasers, and tipping out the accumulated irritation.
She graduated from acting classes at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, received a specialized degree at New York University. She overcame some self-doubt when she first appeared on the set in Gia Coppola’s drama Palo Alto and embodied the character of Raquel.
Film careerAfter the successful debut, the aspiring actress received an offer to play Jill Garvey in The Leftovers, a science fiction series on the HBO channel. The film was popular; viewers were looking forward to the next series. Qualley was noticed. Her agent began to receive offers about filming in other projects.
Margaret Qualley personal lifeMargaret is so absorbed in work that blames her late development for the lack of personal life and in this regard, the unwillingness to start a serious relationship. The more so, that she already made one attempt, dating for several years Nat Wolff, an actor, and musician who starred with her in Death Note.
Margaret Qualley nowThe year 2018 brought Qualley work with Tim Sutton in his drama Donnybrook, but the most fruitful for the roles was 2019, as well as the most memorable, since participation in the cult film by Quentin Tarantino Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was a dream that came true for the girl. When she was approved for the role of a hippie girl nicknamed Pussycat, she admitted that the rehearsal with Brad Pitt seemed to her something unreal.
