STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., July 4 (UPI) -- "Twilight" actor Bronson Pelletier visited sold-out theaters in Michigan to sign autographs and thank fans for their support of the movie franchise.

Pelletier made appearances Saturday at the 7:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. showings of the series' third installment, "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," in Sterling Heights, then moved on to the 10 p.m. screenings in Birmingham, the Detroit Free Press reported Sunday.

"This was so amazing, I'm shaking right now," said 14-year-old Hannah Stanhope, who had her picture taken with Pelletier. "Seriously, this was the best experience of my life."

Pelletier, 23, plays a werewolf named "Jared" who was introduced in the second "Twilight" film, "New Moon."

"It's so surreal," Pelletier said above the screams of hundreds of fans. "It's so amazing how everyone reacts. It's so different on set; it's actually kind of quiet. But when we're not filming it's the hurricane coming from all directions."

Pelletier visited a theater in Cleveland Friday, and he said other cast members were visiting theaters across the country during the Fourth of July weekend.
