When she isn't working, Akopyan is everything from an actress to a writer to a leader in the senior housing complex where she lives and cares for her 101-year-old mother. "I cannot stop myself," Akopyan says. "Sometimes, I'm thinking, 'I'm crazy.' " But, at one time, Akopyan's main role was being a star.
