Che enters the Square: BENICIO DEL TORO (Che) enters the town square with NORMAN SANTIAGO (Tuma) at his side. This was one of the primary scenes in which Soderbergh utilized Campeche extras. All the extras seemed genuinely delirious with joy at Che’s victory. This was rehearsed several times - always with the same enthusiasm from the crowds - before Soderbergh filmed the scene from different perspectives.
