Personal Life & TrainingEdit
Margaret Baldachin was born on June 11, 1987 to Christina and William Baldachin, and was an only child. She grew up in Pittsburgh and moved to Philadelphia at the age of seven. She often spent time reading books, and she said her favorite book growing up was Roald Dahl's Matilda and the classic novel The Secret Garden by Frances Burnett.
Margaret, who always loved singing and dancing, was signed up for theater classes shortly after moving to Philadelphia. During her second year of training her teacher recommended her to audition for Les Mis, as she thought the young girl was talented enough to get the part. Margaret did so and got the part. It became her debut as an actress, and she went on to have other parts.
