SALT LAKE CITY — The premiere of "Breaking Dawn" part 1 is still nearly a week away, but excitement was at a fever pitch Friday night as cast members of the "Twilight" films visited Utah fans.
The crowd of 1,000 screaming tweens, teens and plenty of adults bonded with their favorite vampire and werewolf actors at The Rail in Salt Lake City. The actors signed autographs and took photos with fans and for the media.
"There's a lot of really anticipated, sort of iconic things in the book that we finally shot. So, I think I'm hoping they'll be happy with it," said actress Nikki Reed.
"(The fans) give so much, I feel like it's my duty to give back," said actor Peter Fancinelli. "When you get that kind of love and support, to shy away from it and ignore it? I can't do that."
Actor Charlie Bewly said fan support has made "Twilight" a cultural phenomenon. "These are the guys that fuel this thing," he said among the throng of cheering fans. "It's their passion, their piggy banks, their hormones, their everything that really has fueled 'Twilight.' "
First screenings in Utah begin at midnight on Nov. 17.
