'Twihards' say fangs to their film idols

HUNDREDS of so-called 'Twihards' met the stars of the latest 'Twilight' movie sensation at the Dublin Convention Centre at the weekend.

The excited fans didn't mind queuing in order to have a meet and greet with stars Kellan Lutz (27) and Nikki Reed (24), attending the autograph signing session on Saturday ahead of the release of 'Breaking Dawn Part 2' in two weeks' time.

Both stars were casually dressed during the signing session, in which they put their signatures to an assortment of books, posters and DVDs promoting the hit vampire series.

And being in the birthplace of Dracula creator Bram Stoker during the Halloween bank holiday weekend appears to have gone down well for both the Hollywood stars and their fans -- some of whom sported fake blood dripping from their throats as they posed for photos with their screen idols.

The film will go on general release here on November 16 and concludes the 'Twilight' series, which first hit the silver screen in 2008.
