Howling with excitement: Twi-hards swoon over Taylor Lautner

17 NOVEMBER 2011

Taylor Lautner, the hunky young actor who plays the Twilight series' werewolf hero Jacob Black, caused a frenzy on the red carpet in Stratford.

Fans were literally crawling over each other to get their photographs taken with him. And journalists jossled in the press area to put their questions to the 19-year-old, who film execs have dubbed a young Tom Cruise.

"What will you miss about not doing the films any more?" one asked.

"I'm looking forward to keeping my clothes on," answered the star – dapper in a grey suit and white shirt.

Taylor's topless scenes have swiftly elevated him to heart-throb status, and won him legions of fans.

Following on from the marriage proposals at the LA premiere this week, there were more declarations of love from Twi-hards – the Twilight superfans – many of whom had queued for 30 hours to meet him.

There were still plenty of screams for the vampire saga's other main stars, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

The real life lovers looked more relaxed than ever as they met their fans.

Kristen, glam in a black sparkling Roberto Cavalli dress – but swapping her black peep-toe heels for trainers to sign autographs, said she felt "funny" about the movies coming to an end.

"I do love thinking about my whole experience," said the American actress. "It feels funny to know I don't have to go back and finish more scenes. It feels very light."
