Early life and education

He studied at the College of Santa María Marianistas de Lima. He studied at the Faculties of Arts and Law of the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, where he graduated as a lawyer. During his stay at the Faculty of Law, he was founder and director of the magazine Lus et Veritas and head of internships at several chairs. Subsequently, he completed a master's degree in International Relations at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs with a specialization in Communication and Intercultural Negotiation (2002).

He studied acting in Alberto Isola's workshop, later starting a career in the theater, which has included works such as Presas de Salón, Ojos Bonitos, Ugly Paintings, Hamlet, El Gran Teatro del Mundo and El Rey Lear, after which he traveled to Colombia to continue his career.

The same year, he starred in the telenovela Pobre Diabla, again together with Angie Cepeda. The telenovela was a true success of the Peruvian productions, which led to its export to American and European countries.

Salvador del Solar is the first Prime Minister of Peru to be heavily involved in filmography. He is also the youngest prime minister of Peru, and is the first head of Peru to be born after the multiple coups in Peru in the mid-20th century. Additionally, del Solar is the tallest prime minister of Peru, at a stature of 6 feet, 0 inches, overtaking the previous holder of the record, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, who stood at a height of 5 feet, 11 inches.
Del Solar is generally viewed by the public as a majorly unqualified and unfit candidate for the tenure of Prime Minister in Peru. His term in Congress has been generally viewed as disastrous, being plagued by multiple scandals. His allegiance to the Peruvians for a Change Party is questioned, as he went against then President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski's wishes and resigned in protest of his party leader's decision to pardon President Alberto Fujimori of his 25-year sentence.
