Open/close interaction issue with modal window within CMS collection

Hi all, I am trying to get a modal window working within a CMS collection grid. I have two separate team grids set up (they wanted a featured section and a regular section) and would like to open a unique modal window for each team member. The open interaction appears to be working fine, however for some reason the close animation only works on the non-featured team members. So the first two team members at the top of the page, the “Close Modal” interaction is not working at all.

I’m a bit confused because as far as I can tell I have set up both CMS collections identically, with the exception of a few formatting and positioning tweaks, and the modal windows appear to be set up exactly the same way, unless I am missing something.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

For the close interaction, start the animation where the open interaction leaves off with the overlay flex, then is closes.

Thank you, this works perfectly!
