(NEW YORK) Twi-hards beware, reading this might induce a "twi-cry": The Twilight saga is coming to a close, and The Cinema Society, The Hollywod Reporter, and Samsung Galaxy  final Breaking Dawn Part 2 screening hosted by . While Robert PattinsonKristin Stewart, and Taylor Lautner were M.I.A, instead making Spanish tweens squeal in Madrid, the rest of the cast, including Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Peter Facinelli, Lisa Howard, and Casey LaBow walked the red carpet for a final good-bye. Who else showed their support for the beloved vamps? The likes of Dakota Fanning, Oliver Platt, Ana Beatriz, Olivier Theyskens, Rachel Roy, Jason Wu, Nicky Hilton, Veronica Webb, Lindsay Ellingson, and Nanette Lepore.

Arguably the most enjoyable chapter of the Twilight saga yet, Breaking Dawn Part 2 has its fair share of alumni cast members with a few newbies sprinkled in. With all four films under her belt, Elizabeth Reaser "has had so much Twilight, I will never withdraw...[My character] has become part of me!" Becoming one with her silver screen alter ego was indeed a process of sorts. "If you pretend to be something for a certain number of hours a day, that's how you become who you are; you carry your characters with you for life."

Another vampire with four years of pale skin and powers, Greene's eyes nearly water when press ask about the bittersweet end, saying "to have something like Twilight pushing you through, I've learned a lot about myself, my morals, and my values."

As Greene took a more sentimental approach to goodbyes, Lutz was all smiles, cracking jokes on the carpet while discussing vampire powers and his fetish for scars. With only two Twilight films gracing Maggie Grace's IMDB, the actress remained enthused and not tearful about the finale, telling The Daily that what she will take away from the film is her experience working will Oscar-winning director Bill Condon and a spoon from the wedding scene. Yes, the entire Denali coven stole spoons.

The newest addition to not just Twilight but also the acting world was 14-year-old Mackenzie Foy, who plays Pattinson and Stewart's daughter who appeared to be as fearless on the red carpet as her character in the film, saying "I never get nervous. I even want to go skydiving." That'd sure be a way to celebrate landing a major film role! If only, it were four years from now...

How did the cast really end the saga? While there was no skydiving, there was an epic dance off on the battlefield, which sadly was not shown in concluding scene of the film. Looks like everyone will have to wait for the director's cut to see Lutz' epic dance moves!
Then, the party people headed to Finale on the Bowery to continue toasting to all things Twilight.
