The stars of the Twilight saga films have spoken of their mixed feelings about the fantasy series drawing to an end as they were mobbed by thousands of fans at the premiere of its penultimate instalment.

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner were at east London's Westfield shopping centre for the UK premiere of Breaking Dawn: Part One.

In November next year the series' fifth and final film, Breaking Dawn: Part Two, will bring one of the most successful teen film franchises of recent years to its conclusion.

Robert has been catapulted to superstardom since taking the lead role of vampire Edward Cullen in 2008.

Asked how he felt about the series coming to an end, the star known to fans as R-Patz said: "I don't know yet. I feel I've got a whole 10 years solid of Twilight stuff because even after, every job I do, people are going to be like 'so, how does this compare with Twilight', so hopefully in a few years I'll be able to have some reflective view of it."

His co-star Kristen, who plays Edward's love interest Bella Swan in the films, said she felt "funny" about the saga ending.

Decked out in a black Roberto Cavalli dress with blue trainers, the actress said: "I don't feel finished because I'm going to have to talk about it and thankfully I do love thinking about my whole experience.

"It feels funny to know I don't have to go back and finish more scenes. It feels very light."

Taylor, who plays werewolf Jacob Black, said the series drawing to a close was "a bummer because we all have so much fun making movies so it's a little strange, it was emotional. It's strange to be done for sure".
