Sloane Sandburg, Kevin’s love interest, has been referred to as having the more liberated type of vibe, which is definitely something Milana can pull off.
Sloane appears in eight episodes of the show, which is still on today. It can also be seen on the streaming service Hulu if you’re interested in bringing all of the episodes that feature Milana!
Something More Serious
Although Milana had been acting for as far back as she could remember, she also remembers thinking at one point that she should aim for something a little more concrete than a career in comedy.
She had doubts that her childhood star career would carry her into adulthood, so she decided to head back to school at the University of California in San Diego to earn her BA in Communications years after she’d gotten her GED at the age of 16.
This Is Milana
In 2016, Milana landed another great recurring role and appeared in "This Is Us" as Sloane Sandburg. Sloane is a creative type who pens a play that Kevin, one of the stars, chooses to audition for.
Before the two had gotten together, she was very shy and reserved, but her relationship with Kevin creates a character arch that leads to her gaining loads of confidence.
Back in the Day
In the early 00s, she may not have been a big name in the industry, but she was still making her way through the ranks and showing up in some serious productions. Take her three-episode stint as a dancer on the hit TV show "Lizzie McGuire," starring Hillary Duff.
By then, she had already acted on "Days of Our Lives," and she was getting noticed quickly by execs. She was not only adorable, but she was also talented and worked well on screen. This scored her some major points with the people in charge of production.
The Before Times
Before Milana Vayntrub was a well-known face, she played the role of Denise in the web series, "Roommates Enemies," which aired in 2012 and 2013.
At that time, she counted on roles like that to help her pay her bills while getting her feet on the ground and building her acting career. Plus, she’d also enjoyed acting, and she was thrilled to be a part of it all, no matter how small the parts were that she was finding. But it wouldn’t be long before she would catch her big break.
