Having issues with casting a UScenecomponent as an actor for a call to SetViewTargetWithBlend()

Hey guys, I’m trying to pass in a scene component which is a parent to my camera component so I can switch cameras. The parameters only take an actor so I was unsure what to do, I attempted it with an UActorcomponent but that didn’t seem to work either, does anybody have any experience with this? Here’s what I attempted so far -

[FONT=Courier New]CameraParent = CreateDefaultSubobject<USceneComponent>(FName(“Camera Parent”));

Camera = CreateDefaultSubobject<UCameraComponent>(TEXT(“ActualCamera”));

Then the function looked like this -

[FONT=Courier New]void ASwitchRoom::BlendToCamera()
OurPlayerController= UGameplayStatics::GetPlayerController(this, 0);

AActor* NewCameraPosition = Cast&lt;AActor&gt;(CameraParent);

if (OurPlayerController)
  OurPlayerController-&gt;SetViewTargetWithBlend(NewCameraPosition, 0.65f);


When I run this function the blend actually blends to a first-person view of the player which is not intended and unsure how it even happens tbh.

I’ve attached a screenshot of the hierarchy in the editor as well, Thanks in advance!
