The cast

You will recognise the amazing and well-renowned cast from other local and international TV shows. The actors are proudly South African, telling proudly South African stories with a dark twist. 

Sisanda Henna, whom you'll remember from the intriguing crime drama Trackers, plays a husband who looks like he has it all: his own budding business and a beautiful, driven wife. But he lacks something money cannot buy.

WATCH: Sisanda Henna and the rest of the cast discuss some of their favourite scenes while filming.

The boisterous and talented Jay Anstey talks about her role below. Her character Tamsin is a girl from the wrong side of the tracks but is a mother who is willing to do anything for her children and fight for what's hers.  You can also catch Anstey on Legacy as the fun-loving Lexi Price on M-Net 101.

Complex characters

Not everything is as it seems. The characters on Inconceivable have many dimensions and will have us questioning our own lives, facing our own fears and demons. You will get to know each character more as they shed their layers and expose their deepest, darkest secrets. 

Actress Anel Alexander gives some insight into her character Marieke, a great doctor, caring mother, and loving wife whose life is thrown into chaos when her best friend Rachel forces her to carry a big, dark secret.

The character Rachel appears to be a rich, composed, and highly successful attorney and dedicated wife on the surface, but deep down she holds deadly secrets and pain of her own. A can of worms is opened when she does the unthinkable and from there on the secrets and drama keep coming.
