"I'm feeling fantastic, sad, emotional, there's a lot of things going on inside of me right now, but I'm just trying to soak up every moment because this means the world to me," Lautner said.
Author Stephenie Meyer, whose Twilight novels kicked off the franchise and phenomenon.
Meyer said she would miss watching the three lead cast members evolve as actors and characters in the films.
"It's really been great to watch them grow up, particularly Kristen because her character gets to evolve so much in this film, and to watch her be all powerful and really get to where the character was always meant to go, to be the fiercest of the fierce, was really rewarding for me," the author said.
Twi-hards camped out for the premiere
Dozens of excited Twilight fans set up tents in Los Angeles on Thursday ahead of next week's world premiere of the last film in the vampire romance franchise. Some 2,200 people from all over the world have registered to camp on a concrete plaza outside a downtown Los Angeles movie theater, movie studio Summit Entertainment said.
The fans — most of them young women — will get guaranteed spots to see stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner walk the red carpet for the November 12 premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2. Summit has laid on special activities during the five day wait, including a marathon screening of the four other films in the blockbuster franchise, surprise appearances from some cast members, and a Twilight-themed workout.
"We figured it was a once in a lifetime opportunity for some of us. This is the last movie. We're never going to get to do it again and we wanted to hang out with some of our friends for the last one," Bri-Anne Glover told Reuters Television as she settled in at the camp on Thursday. "I love Breaking Dawn because that's kind of where I am in my life. I've got the husband, I've got my children, and we're getting on with our lives and having a happy life and the same with Edward and Jacob and Bella," said fan Eryka Bradford.
