First reporting:

The stars descended upon Charleston last night for the sold out premiere of the new film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' best-selling novel, ‘Dear John.’ The red-carpet event was a fundraiser for Carolina Autism.

Downtown’s Hippodrome was packed to the gills with media, fans, and premier attendees dressed to impress for the exciting event. Stars Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum hit the soggy red carpet to greet a hoard of screaming fans who were posted up with signs, camera and love for the hot young actors. The energy level was a 10 the entire evening.

The Post and Courier has a nice write-up on Sunday night’s premier and NBC News 2 has a video overview of the night and interviews.

TheDigitel was there and we snagged a bunch of great photos of the stars, including some of 7-year-old Braeden Reed, a resident of Daniel Island.

We’ll have video of our interview with stars Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum up as soon as we can.
