Milana Vayntrub. You may not know that name, but you’ve definitely seen her face—trust us. Vayntrub has recently appeared on NBC’s breakout hit This is Us as Sloan Sanburg, a love interest for Kevin. But the heartwarming family drama isn’t the only reason why she looks so familiar.


If you watch TV without fast-forwarding through the commercials, then you’ve definitely seen those AT&T ads featuring a salesperson who is all too ready to answer questions, no matter how ridiculous. That character’s name is Lily Adams, and also happens to be played by Vayntrub.

Vayntrub can also be seen in the female-led Ghostbusters movie. So for anyone who’s been wondering why Sloane looks familiar, the mystery has been solved.

This is Us, airs Tuesdays, 9/8c, NBC
