"They found us."
―The monitor[src]

A human female monitor served the Resistance and was aboard the MC85 Star Cruiser Raddus during the evacuation of D'Qar. After the Resistance successfully evacuated the planet, the Raddus jumped to lightspeed, but was tracked through hyperspace by Snoke's flagship, the Supremacy. The woman saw the First Order forces on her monitors as the enemy fleet exited hyperspace and immediately notified Commander Poe Dameron that the First Order had found them. The command bridge of the Raddus was destroyed shortly thereafter.[1]

Behind the scenes

"It's literally, I [sit] on the spaceship and I say three words."
Michaela Coel[src]

The character was portrayed by Michaela Coel in Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi, the second installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy.[1] Coel only did one line for her scene and was convinced that her part would be cut from the film, but it ultimately was not.[2]

In the original cut of the movie, the Resistance monitor reports to Poe Dameron when the First Order's forces arrive during an alternate depiction of the evacuation of D'Qar,[3] a scene which was present in both the adult[4] and junior novelizations of the film.[5] During post-production, the report was edited into the scene where the First Order finds the Resistance after the latter exits hyperspace, although it is still Poe who responds to her report.

"Chewing Gum star Michaela Coel was reluctant to call her Last Jedi appearance a cameo. She told Complex earlier this year: "I'm so serious. It's literally, I [sit] on the spaceship and I say three words. And they probably didn't even make the movie." They did! Coel appears as a Resistance monitor who declares "they found us" early on in the film."
