(LOS ANGELES) — Fans who had been camping out for days finally got a chance to feast their eyes on the stars of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 in Los Angeles Monday night.
Walking the black carpet were Kristen Stewart and co-star/boyfriend Robert Pattinson, as well as the series’ other stars, including Taylor Lautner, Kellan Lutz and Maggie Grace.
More than 2,000 diehard fans started lining up in Los Angeles Thursday afternoon, setting up their tents in front of L.A.’s Nokia Theater ahead of the premiere of the final installment of the Twilight franchise.
One of those fans, 36-year-old Cora, got emotional Monday night, telling ABC News Radio she and her fellow “Twi-hards” have “grown as a family,” and expressed she’d like to thank Twilight series author Stephanie Meyer, “because we have more friends for it.” Cora explained she and her friend agreed they “can’t wait to have kids, so we can tell them” about their evening.
Grace said she was impressed by the “culture” of Twilight fans she came across.
Stewart explained the series is something “we all put everything we had into,” and “I will have that forever. We don’t have to say goodbye, it’s not going anywhere.”
The cast has a busy promotional schedule this week.
As Pattinson explained, “We’re gonna go…to London, and then that night we’re going to go to Madrid. It’s so annoying — I think we end it in Germany in two days. But it’s nice to see everyone’s kind of really sweet about it.”
