Power's alter ego Cameron Murray has been cheating on girlfriend Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb) with her auntie Chas (Lucy Pargeter) in recent months.
The actor told PA of the public's reaction: "I think some people see him as a heartless cheat, some people see his predicament and have that memory of what caused this.
"It's very easy to forget how the baby was conceived with Andy and all that he had been putting up with."
Debbie and Andy Sugden (Kelvin Fletcher) were forced to sleep together in order to get bone marrow to save their gravely ill daughter Sarah.
"But even those who think he's a bit of a cheat aren't necessarily unhappy about that. There's been a lot of positive feedback about him being a cheat and a bit of a bad boy," Power went on.
The 39-year-old also declared that, while Cameron is now in love exclusively with Chas, he still "cares" for Debbie, adding: "He does still care about Debbie and it's that care that is keeping him there.
"Cameron is also happy to move back to Jersey. I'm not sure Chas is."
