Keep character in first frame of animation

So I have a skeleton that I want to sit down and when the player gets near, it rises. The animation I want to use is from the marketplace and it’s of the character sitting down and then standing up. There isn’t one of them just sitting there. How can I keep the skeleton on the first frame of the animation until the player is nearby? I’m pretty sure I already have the logic all fine for when the player is near by and allows for a transition of the skeleton to stand up. I’m mainly confused on how to keep it on frame 1 until it should move.

You can use Sequence Evaluator instead of Seqence Player node with static specified time.

You could try to set a play rate of 0…
