Python scripting for metahuman

When I need to animate a UE4 mannequin, its not hard for me to do it with python scripting. I add an animation track to the actor itself.
For a metahuman, I’ll have to add an animation track to the body component of the metahuman. I’m trying to figure out how to add a body component to the metahuman actor with a script in python. Have spent a fair bit of time on this… would appreciate help anyone can give.
