Bibiografie[wysig | wysig bron]

Rockas het van die Katolieke Skool van St Dominic in Boksburg matrikuleer. Sy het 'n B.A. (Hons) graad in Engelse letterkunde aan die Universiteit van die Witwatersrand verwerf. Een van die groot invloede in haar jeug was die legendariese George Bizos,[11][12] die Griekse prokureur van Nelson Mandela. Rockas het toneelspel by die dramaskool van die Universiteit van Kaapstad studeer, onder die leiding van prof. Robert Mohr.[13] Reza de Wet was 'n tydgenoot[14] . Uiteindelik het Rockas met 'n verwysingsbrief van die groot Afrikaanse akteur Cobus Rossouw,[15] Suid-Afrika vir die Verenigde Koninkryk verlaat.

Met Internationationalist Theater het Rockas die rolle van Emma in Die Kamp van Griseld Gambaro, [22][23][24][25][26] Mej. Julie van August Strindberg,[27] en Miriam in In die Kroeg van 'n Tokio-Hotel van Tennessee Williams gespeel, en hersien deur Dirk de Villers van Pretoria News en The Star.[28][29]

Rockas het in die rolprente Die Hekse van Nicolas Roeg as Henrietta, Nereida in Oh Babylon van Costas Ferris[30] en as die Vrou van Onderhoud in Buiteland van Peter Hyams[31] verskyn. In Griekeland het sy die hoofrol van mej. Ortiki in die Griekse televisiereeks Emmones Idees[32][33] [34]met regisseur Thodoros Maragos vertolk.
