About Irina Voronina :
Born in a small town in Russia, Irina Voronina dreamed of becoming a model. However she was always told “No” by the Russian modeling scouts, at the age of 19 she was considered to be “too old” to start a modeling career. She would not take no for an answer, and at the age of 20 she moved to Milan, Italy, to make her dreams come true. She was immediately signed by a big agency, and was instantly booking print jobs and TV commercials in Italy and the rest of Europe. As her international modeling career began to skyrocket, Irina made her way to the US, where she was introduced to Playboy Studio West in Los Angeles CA.
It took no time at all for the Russian beauty to become Playboy’s Miss January 2001, and Irina permanently relocated to LA to take her career to the next level. She signed with Wilhelmina LA, which offered her the opportunity to work with world-famous photographers such as Teri Richardson, Mathew Rolston, Antoine Verglas, David LaChapelle and many others. She’s an advertisers dream, known for her gorgeous smile, charm and on-set professionalism. Irina represented many international brands including SKYY Vodka, Miller Lite, Michelob Ultra, Bacardi, Sisley & Detour to name a few.

In 2008 Irina was named St. Pauli Girl spokes model and completed a 12-month PR tour across America. She became the first ever St Pauli Girl to ring the NYSE closing bell representing Constellation Brands. The St. Pauli Girl experience served as valuable media training for Irina, and she began accepting hosting engagements.

In 2013 Irina Voronina was named Kandy Magazine’s Model of the Year as a result of her fans downloading the highest number of digital issues that year.
She is also a 3 times Kandy magazine cover girl.
In 2001 Irina’s first agent told her that she will never be able to be an actress because of her accent. And again, she would not take no for an answer. Irina worked very hard on eliminating her accents, and took classes at the best acting schools.
She got her first big screen break in “Reno 911!: The movie” as the funny foreign girl. Since then she appeared on many feature films, including “Balls of Fury”, “Piranha 3DD”, “Lazer Team”, “Killing Hasselhoff”, an indie film “Scramble” to be released in December of 2017, which she also co-produced.

In 2018 we anticipate seeing Irina co-star in the new TV Series “Barry” (HBO) and “13 Reason Why” (Netflix).
