You might call it Twi-sadness, and there's even Twi-crying.

Taylor Lautner is noticing just how bummed Twilight fans are about the series ending.

Lautner, who plays werewolf Jacob Black in the series, is traveling the world (Los Angeles, London, Madrid) for Breaking Dawn -- Part 2 premieres. He's noticing sadness mixed with the usual rowdiness that has made the events famous.

"We had a lot more criers than usual in London last night," Lautner says, speaking on the phone today on his way to the Madrid premiere. "People are definitely more emotional. It's the last one. There is less rowdiness and craziness."

"It's strange. Things are a little calmer going around," he says.

Lautner has discussed this with his co-stars -- Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are also on the international tour. The premieres are serving as a farewell of sorts for the five-part movie series that started with Twilight in 2008.

"It already felt strange for us," says Lautner of his co-stars."I knew the fans were going to be sad it's ending, too. But it's strange to actually see it in person."

The numbers are definitely there. Lautner says at Wednesday night's London event there were "north of 6,000 people." And he saw the same group of Twi-hards in the crowd who have been at every show for the past four years. "We're friends in a way. It's like, 'How you doing? Good to see you again,' " says Lautner.

And tickets look to boost the finale into another world starting at midnight. Fandango.com reports that Breaking Dawn represents 92% of all ticket sales Thursday, with thousands of showtimes sold out across the country, from major markets like New York and Los Angeles to smaller communities from Alabaster, Ala., to Zanesville, Ohio.
