Do you remember Flo from Progressive? How about the T-Mobile girl? Or the AT&T saleswoman? It can be easy to forget that those people are real actors who take home a real paycheck. How much are these famous commercial faces really worth behind the scenes?
The AT&T Spokeswoman
The woman from the AT&T commercials is actually named Milana Vayntrubm. Before she was famous for being the AT&T lady, she was a model and actor starting at age 5. Moving from Uzbekistan to Hollywood when she was just a baby, the young star had to help supplement her family's income with her small acting gigs. Eventually, the family found their financial footing, and she was able to act full-time.
Milana was first seen in Barbie commercials when she was just a kid, but her later web series Let's Talk About Something More Interesting appearances landed her the coveted phone commercial gig. After that money came through, Milana finally earned enough in savings. AT&T paid her handsomely for her work, about $500,000 for the commercials. She then went on to act in the Yahoo! series Other Space.
