Robert Pattinson feels like he has split from a lover now the Twilight: Saga movies have wrapped.

The 24-year-old actor and his castmates, who include girlfriend Kristen Stewart, Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene, finished filming the final scenes for the two Breaking Dawn movies last Thursday in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada.

The big screen heartthrob admits it's not easy walking away from his vampire character Edward Cullen after so many years of playing him.

In an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper - which was conducted before shooting ended - he said: "It does feel like a break-up. I do love the guy - and I'm going to miss him. I prefer to think of ending this franchise like leaving school. It's the last day of high school."

However, one thing Robert isn't going to miss is the contact lenses he has to wear to achieve his undead eyes.

He admitted: "I'll be very glad not to put those contacts in anymore or have to put on the sparkling make-up. But it's been my whole life. The whole of my whole 20s. And I wouldn't have it any other way."

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn has been split into two parts to deal with the complex storyline in author Stephenie Meyer's final book in the series.

It seems Robert may have an ambition away from films in the near future, having a baby with Kristen.

He revealed: "I'd love to have a family. Sometime in the future."
