Anim Montage does not play until Key is Released

In the character it has an input action for the key press to play a montage. If the player presses the key and releases it all works fine and the montage plays just fine.

However if the player holds the key press down and does not release all actions in the blueprint are done except the playing of the montage until the key is released. A trace seems to show the montage is called but it just doesn’t play the anim until the release.

Any suggestions thanks?
