Since the show began back in 2013 it has slowly but surely grown on us right up until its fifth season. 

There are few shows on television that have caught our attention like Rockville, apart from having an interesting story line, the drama series also made us appreciate the many actors that feature on the show.

Some of the actors may have been in the industry for more than a decade and have acted on many other shows, but Rockville really seems to have brought out the best in them. For some, the drama series even revived their acting careers.

Themba Ndaba as Detective Ngema

He was the police officer/blesser we all loved to hate. 

Before Themba Ndaba's role on this show, we had honestly forgotten about him until he appeared on Rockville. His role as a blesser scored him his most fundamental role to date as the crazy Uncle Brutus on The Queen.

Khanya Mkangisa as Nolitha

Khanya's role might've been short-lived but it definitely left a lasting impression with the viewers. We immediately had a new found respect for her as an actress when she was on the Rockville

Brenda Ngxoli as Gladys

Brenda's role as Gladys brought so much joy to our hearts, but that joy soon turned into heartache when we came to learn about the reason behind her character becoming an alcoholic.

As an actor, you know your job has been a success when you're able to evoke emotions from the audience.

Tango Ncetezo as Peggy

Ghetto yet classy and funny at the same time, Peggy always managed to put a smile on our faces whenever she appeared on the screen.

The way she used to chew her bubble gum and how she would snap at people who addressed her the wrong way was hilarious. We can only hope that the Ferguson's will keep her on the show when the sixth season returns.
