She left the series in 1996 and began to perform on stage, appearing in a production of "Much Ado About Nothing" at Knight Bridge Theater in Pasadena, California. 1997 saw Johnson give solid performances in the TV-movies "Killing Mr. Griffin" (NBC) and "Suzie Q" (Disney Channel) but her most impressive work was in "Perfect Body," an NBC movie about a gymnast plagued by anorexia.

She returned to regular series work in 1998 on The WB's "Felicity," playing Julie Emrick, an understanding friend to the somewhat unstable titular college student. Johnson's film career was also jump-started that year with a supporting role in "Without Limits," the biopic of Olympian Steve Prefontaine. She went on to play a reluctant vampire in the independent feature "Cold Hearts" (1999).
