The girl we all know as Lily from AT&T has much more than just a perky personality and enthusiastic smile.
After her commercial appearances, she became much more well-known thanks to higher-profile roles in TV shows. When she’s not working as an actress and comedian, Milana spends her time as an activist for refugees and uses her social media presence and fame to make sure that others see the importance of the causes she holds near and dear to her heart.
Speaking about her activism and comedy, Milana said, “People are really waking up to global responsibility, especially our generation, and I think the internet has a big part in it. I think it’s maybe just a time of so much strife in the world that it’s hard to ignore. Then there are brilliant comedians that make it something digestible but also infuriating.”
While the world knows her as Lily Adams from AT&T, you can say that you know her as a person, too (well, after you read this article, of course). You recognize her from the AT&T commercials, but it’s Milana Vayntrub who’s making Lily a reality.
