TWILIGHT star Robert Pattinson told frenzied fans at the final film’s London premiere last night that the saga had “changed everything” about his life.
The arrival of the British actor and his co-stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner in Leicester Square was greeted with wild screaming and cheering from thousands of “Twi-hards”.
Some 6,000 fans, some of who have camped since Saturday, packed the square. Many came from outside the UK, with fans from the USA, Dubai, Sweden, Norway and Hungary all amongst the crowd.

Meanwhile Pattinson, who plays Edward, and Lautner, who plays Jacob, dressed smartly in suits.
Pattinson, 26, told the crowds in an interview on a specially erected stage that the saga connected to people on a “primal” level.
“For me it’s changed everything about my life. I don’t even think I’d be acting if I wasn’t doing this, or if I hadn’t done the first one. It’s crazy. The character and the whole experience combined for me,” he said.
“It’s definitely really created something which connects to people on a very fundamental level, it’s like primal.”
Stewart, 22, described the end of the saga as “a trip”.
