Milana Aleksandrovna Vayntrub (/ˈvaɪntruːb/; Uzbek Cyrillic: Милана Александровна Вайнтруб; born March 8, 1987) is an American actress and comedian who is known for playing the character Lily Adams in a series of AT&T television commercials.
Vayntrub was born in Tashkent, Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic, and is Jewish. She moved to West Hollywood with her parents at the age of three, fleeing religious persecution. She started acting in Mattel Barbie commercials at the age of five, due in part to her family's financial problems.
Vayntrub briefly attended Beverly Hills High School, but dropped out after her sophomore year, got a GED, and went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from University of California, San Diego. She received training with the improvisational comedy group Upright Citizens Brigade.
Vayntrub and Stevie Nelson teamed up to start the YouTube comedy channel Live Prude Girls where they produced a number of shorts and the hit web series Let's Talk About Something More Interesting. Live Prude Girls went on to be featured on NewMediaRockstars' Top 100 Channels countdown, ranked at No. 93.
Vayntrub has had small roles in film and television, including Life Happens. She has also starred in several CollegeHumor videos. In 2011, Vayntrub was the lead in the music video for "Teenage Tide" by Letting Up Despite Great Faults. She appeared as Tara in two episodes of the sitcom Silicon Valley.
In January 2016, after visiting Greece and meeting with refugee families fleeing the Syrian Civil War, Vayntrub co-founded a website and social media movement called #CantDoNothing to spotlight the European migrant crisis. She appeared in the television series This Is Us as Sloane Sandburg, author and co-star of the play in which Kevin Pearson is starring in New York.
