Actor dependencies

I was trying to unit test a service class which dispatches an event through the Actor's dispatch method. I ended up with a null reference error which i had no idea where it came from. After digging into the class source i found that the dispatch method depends on an evnetDispatcher being set on the Actor.

Could the Actor class either depend on the eventDispatcher upon construction or at the very least have a null reference check and a nicer error message in the dispatch method.

Kind regards

    Good point! Declaring the dependency via the constructor would muddy
    up derived classes, but a null check could indeed be useful.
