It’s not uncommon for fans of major franchises to devote several hours, days and weeks to the stories they hold so dear, but there’s something almost indescribable about the devotion of the “Twilight” fanbase — a devotion that was on full display Thursday night (June 24) at the world premiere of “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
“This is beyond insane. It’s, like, ludicrous madness. You can’t describe something like this,” actor Justin Chon, who plays Eric in the “Twilight” series, told MTV News on the black carpet of the “Eclipse” premiere. “These are some of the most dedicated fans that you’ll find on planet Earth.”
Sarah Clarke, who plays Bella’s mother Renee Dwyer in the “Twilight” films, echoed Chon’s sentiment: “You never get used to this. I think there’s an Elvis quality, you know?”
