Since then her credits have included two box office Hollywood movies as well as the lead female in five short films. She has also performed roles in Shakespearean, Russian, and numerous fringe plays. She has also appeared in a number of television commercials.

Throughout her career Mignonne has taught at various drama schools, in particular the early stages age group, as well as several summer workshops. In 2003 she started Blue Jellybean drama parties for children, combining her experience at teaching with her natural rapport with young children.
