This talented actress was born in the small town of Albertinia in Mosselbay and was bitten by the showbiz bug at a young age. Monique began performing in the church band and the school choir but quickly realised that singing was not enough for her.

I've always wanted to be a performer. I used to think I wanted to be a famous singer growing up... But as I grew up, expressing myself needed to be more than singing a song. I needed to tell stories.

Monique Rockman's family has remained in the shadows while she embraced the spotlight, and not much information is available regarding her personal life. Is Monique Rockman married? The love of this lady's life goes by the name of Kennan, and the two are proud parents of a five-year-old son, Axel.
