Replace player character in third person with my own model and reuse the normal animations?

Hi, I’m making a game in Unreal Engine 4 using the third person template. I have my skeletal mesh and stuff, but I wanna replace the player character with my own model, and keep the animations the player character already has. How can I do that?

Just make your model using the exact same skeletal structure as the mannequin.

And / or learn about retargeting.
