Early life and education
Ilana was born into the Jewish family of Phil Becker, a lawyer and an ethics teacher, and her mom who was a practicing nurse. She wasn’t into acting at first, being interested in dancing and started pursuing a dancing career at the age of 19. She graduated from New York University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, and attended Lee Strasberg Theatre where she started working on her acting skills, and went on to complete level four Upright Citizen Brigade Theatre improvement program. She also studied at the Institute of Contemporary Arts and Stonestreet Studios for Film and Television.
Before she started her dancing and acting careers, she worked as a bartender at B.B. King’s Blue Club on Times Square – that’s where she figured out that her favorite drink is hot water and lemon, and that she enjoys eating poached eggs.
Ilana was acting everywhere – she was appearing in theatre shows, TV series and movies as well. She started with theatre in shows such as “One, Two, Whatever You Do”, “Laundry and Bourbon” and “Five Women Wearing the Same”.
She appeared in a couple of movies at the start of her career, the most notable including “Perfect Stranger”, and “School of Rock” starring alongside Jack Black – the movie was a major success, mostly amongst teenagers, and earned 7.1/10 rating on IMDb. She went on to appear in shows such as “Odd Mom Out” on Bravo TV, “Girl Code” on MTV, while also guest-starring in a single episode of “Orange Is The New Black”. She later landed a couple of lead roles in movies such as “Future 38”, “Fish Bowl”, and “Owoto”- a 50 minute-long comedy movie about Kimmy Spitzer (Ilana), an idiot who manages to ruin a backyard birthday party and does her best to find people to help her fix it.
Ilana worked hard in the upcoming years, and became a co-host on “Date Night” on AMC, while also winning roles on “Meet The Upper Crust” on Viacom, “Crashing” on HBO, “The Mysteries of Laura” on NBC, and “Alpha House” from Amazon Studios.
Ilana is so versatile that she even managed to appear in commercials – she is mostly known for being a part of a Viberzi commercial with Alison Becker – Viberzi is a prescription drug used to treat irritable bowel syndrome and diarrhea, with Ilana playing the role of a woman who constantly had stomach ache. She attracted immense attention for her role in this commercial, because ‘she brought a certain kind of charm to a role that would usually pass for being plain and boring’.
At first, Ilana was not talking about her personal life at all, even though interviewers wanted to know if she was in a relationship with anybody. Then bit by bit, she gave out some tips including the fact that her boyfriend is an owner of a coffee shop. On 29 November 2017, she showed a diamond engagement ring in a picture on her Instagram account featuring her husband to be, Scott Price – he is an actor and a director, best known for “Fishbowl” and “You Were Never Really Here” movies. The couple married on 1 September, 2018, with their reception organized at 99 Scott Ave, Brooklyn, New York.
Ilana has many hobbies and does many things in her free time, including yoga, aerobics, cycling and running.
Appearance and net worth
She never shared the year of her birth so her current age is unknown. She has long blonde hair, blue eyes, is 5ft 4ins (1.62m) tall, weighs around 112lbs (51kgs), and wears a dress size 10.
According to authoritative sources, Ilana’s net worth is estimated to be around $1.2 million, while she has an annual income of around $300,000. She earned all of that money by herself, most of which has come from her roles in commercials and her appearances in TV series.
Social media presence
Ilana is very active on social media platforms but she is not as popular as she might be – her Instagram account is followed by 10,000 people and she’s posted more than 2,000 times. She also has a Twitter account which she opened in April 2013, and has gathered nearly 10,000 followers and tweeted around 2,100 times – she has a Facebook page too, but it is private.
Ilana loves her nephew Zachy who was suffering from a very rare problem called bone marrow disease when he was six – Ilana tried her best to spend as much time as she could with him during his battle with this disease, and luckily for him, he managed to receive a transplant and is doing just fine. Ilana explained during an interview that this happens in only 25 cases every year, of which her nephew was one. She only regrets that she wasn’t there during the transplantation procedure, because she was shooting in Mexico, and in any case she couldn’t see him until two weeks after the surgery because the doctors wouldn’t allow it.
