Miss Jane Alexander was born on October 28, 1939 in Boston, Massachusetts, to nurse Ruth Elizabeth and orthopedic surgeon Thomas Quigley. She graduated from Beaver Country Day and went on to an all-girls school in Chestnut Hill, outside of Boston, where Jane Alexander discovered her talent and love for acting.

The father of the future actress insisted that his daughter get a higher education before becoming an actress. So Jane Alexander entered Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, majoring in Mathematics and Computer Programming, where she attended a theater group.

In her youth, Jane studied at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, where she joined the Dramatic Society of the University of Edinburgh. This experience strengthened her desire to become an actress.
