Vayntrub was born in Tashkent, Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic,[3][5] and is Jewish.[6] She moved to West Hollywood with her parents at the age of three, fleeing religious persecution.[7][8] She started acting in Mattel Barbie commercials at the age of five, due in part to her family’s financial problems.[9]

Since November 2013, she has portrayed a saleswoman named “Lily Adams” in a series of TV commercials for AT&T.[3] She also portrayed Tina Shukshin on the Yahoo! Screen original series Other Space.

In January 2016, after visiting Greece and meeting with refugee families fleeing the Syrian Civil War, Vayntrub co-founded a website and social media movement called #CantDoNothing to spotlight the European migrant crisis.[7][8][12] She currently appears in the television series This Is Us as Sloane Sandburg, author and co-star of the play in which Kevin Pearson is currently appearing in New York.
