Milana Vayntrub is an actress, comedian, writer, producer, and director who is best known for portraying the character Lily Adams in over forty national AT&T commercials since 2013. She was born in Tashkent, Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic and immigrated 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 and landed bit parts on various commercials and television shows thereafter. Milana attended Beverly Hills High School for a while but dropped out to pursue a career as an actress which seems to have paid off, because shortly thereafter Milana joined the world famous improv group Upright Citizens Brigade and once established as a comedic dynamo she founded the extremely popular YouTube channel Live Prude Girls.
Milana continued to act, landing roles on hit shows such as Silicon Valley, Love, Key and Peele, House of Lies, The League, and many many more. She also co-starred in last year’s sleeper horror hit “Werewolves Within.”
In January 2016, after visiting Greece and meeting with refugee families fleeing violence in Syria, Milana co-founded a website and social media movement called #CantDoNothing to spotlight the European migrant crisis. To further spread the word she created a short documentary film entitled Can’t Do Nothing that has since been written about on the Huffington Post, Business Insider, Elite Daily, AdWeek, The Chive, Ryot, and a slew of other publications.
Milana joined Hungry Man in 2016 and since then was not only included on AdWeek’s Creative 100 list, but she made the cover of the entire issue including a detailed write-up and interview.
Indeed the future is looking very bright for this actor/director/writer/producer/documentarian/spokeswoman.
