You’ve definitely seen her on TV, providing a face for the company known as AT&T. But “Lily” from AT&T is much more than this… she is Milana Vayntrub. After kicking off her career with this commercial role, Milana has been accepting higher-profile roles in television shows. In addition to being an actress and comedian, Milana is a refugee activist who is, “…very passionate about these people who are going through a hard time.” The issue of refugees is something very personal, as her parents came to the United States after fleeing Uzbekistan.
Milana is a prime example of how fame can be used to spread positive messages and make change in the world. While she may have started off as Lily Adams from that AT&T commercial, Milana’s journey is just beginning. Read on for some of her past roles and future possibilities in Milana’s sights.
The real face behind Lily from AT&T
Allow us to introduce you to Lily. Sorry – Milana. While you may only know her as Lily from the AT&T commercial, the very real and funny face of Milana Vayntrub is the one making Lily a reality. Milana brought us the not so helpful yet all too hilarious AT&T store associate who had the innate ability to have us audiences actually remember her after the commercial was over. Milana is indeed unforgettable.
A bit of modeling
When you look like Milana, there is no way you don’t at the very least dabble in modeling (especially if you live in Los Angeles). Here we see one of her head shots that she sent out and brought with her for auditions. Milana has a very innocent look to her, although her comedic style is far from it. Milana did a lot of her own work in acting, being a part of the web series CollegeHumor Originals from 2011 to 2014, for a total of 15 episodes.
