Can't find blueprint to add to actor

So I’m following this tutorial on youtube ( and it has been working fine until I went to add the child blueprint to the game character actor (at, when I clicked add component i could not locate the blueprint there even though i created the parent one as an actor class. If I drag it into the blueprint it gets added under the CapsuleComponent as a physical thing where i cannot modify its characteristics. I’m probably making a rookie mistake or something but I cannot locate any solutions to the problem online. Help would be appreciated.
