In 1933 she emigrated to the United States, signing with Fox Film Corporation and making her film debut in 1934 using the stage name Mona Barrie.

Barrie co-starred in 1942's Dawn on the Great Divide, the last film Buck Jones made before dying in the Cocoanut Grove fire in Boston, Massachusetts.
A stage actress as well, Mona Barrie performed at various playhouses across the U.S. and debuted on Broadway in 1937.
