Miguel Ángel Solá (born May 14, 1950) is a prolific Argentine actor who has made over 60 film appearances in film and TV in Argentina since 1973.

Born in Buenos Aires, Solá belongs to the Vehil's dynasty of actors, eight generations of actors originally from Catalonia. His mother was Paquita Vehil and his aunt the legendary Luisa Vehil. His sister Mónica is also an actress. He began working in television in 1973 and made his big screen debut with Más allá del sol in 1975.

His theater beginnings were in 1971, and in 1976 he achieved stardom in Peter Shaffer's Equus with Duilio Marzio. He is well remembered in, among other plays, The Elephant Man, Deathtrap, and Jean Cocteau's The Two-Headed Eagle.

By the 1980s, he had become a major film actor appearing in major films such as Asesinato en el senado de la nación (1984), Sur (1987), and A dos aguas (1988). He portrayed the 1920s-era doctor and epidemiologist, Salvador Mazza, in the 1995 biopic Casas de fuego. He later starred in La Fuga (2001), The Impatient Alchemist (2000), La puta y la ballena (2004), and Arizona Sur (2004).

Solá married Spanish actress Blanca Oteyza in 1996, and the couple had two daughters. He moved to Spain, where he has a notable career in theater, movies and TV. He was nearly crippled on November 2006 while bathing on a beach in the Canary Islands, and spent two months recovering from the accident. Solá and Oteyza were separated in 2011 and he returned to Argentina, where he reappeared on television and the theater - and where he met Paula Cancio, a young Spanish actress with whom he had a son in 2013.[1]
