So, Faith has a much deeper voice in S7. Any idea why is that? Any plot reason, an acting decision by Dushku, an illness Dushku was struggling with that has an impact on her voice?
It might not have been such an issue during the original run of the series since years passed before Faith reappeared in Buffy. However, as I watch the series now, Faith's voice sounds so different from how it was before, that it is uncomfortable to my ears.

From IMDB trivia... " When she was told her naturally deep, husky voice was destroying her vocal chords, she went to a vocal coach to learn to speak in a higher register."

It's an incredibly long article, but this explains some of the issues. Basically (as I understand it) deep voices vibrate the cords more roughly, and the vocal cords of a woman are thinner and therefore more subject to damage.
