HELP!! Start Animation playing from 90 rather than 0

I am using the third person character template and the animation starter pack. I have created a couple of blendspaces but when I start the game, the charter idle is actually running to the right i.e. at 90 rather than 0. I have tried various setups in the animation BP to try solve this but nothing seems to work. Is anybody else experiencing these issues?

set the Parameters to start at absolute values.
